15 minutes by fast
boat from the city centre, this reef was affected by the closure
of the channel between St. John's and Lazarus Islands. The rich
reef flat still has a variety of hard and soft corals. There
is also a sandy shore with Common sea stars (not so common anymore
on our shores) and other interesting marine life. Lazarus
Island is currently not accessible to the public, but if it
was, it's broad reef flats and sandy shores would be easily
explored by non-divers.
