Ravaged by the 2009 earthquake and tsunami, Lefaga Beach has since rebuilt its infrastructure and thrives again as a tropical paradise. This beach is great for relaxing and sunbathing on the white sand. Grab your snorkeling gear and search for giant clams in the clear waters, or take a kayak out and explore the shoreline. A nearby resort offers toilets, showers, a restaurant, and other convenient facilities. This attraction is famous for being the setting of the 2004 Gary Cooper film "Return to Paradise."
