lagoon (noun) a lake of sea water separated from the sea by sand; a shallow lake near a larger lake or a river.

A lake of sea water separated partly or completely from the sea either by a sand dune or by a coral reef is a lagoon. Lagoons are usually shallow, that is, not very deep. A small area of fresh water separated from a bigger lake or a river by sand is also a lagoon. Such lagoons are a pleasure to swim in.

  • The southwest part of the country near the sea is crisscrossed with lagoons, so the road transport system is not properly developed there.
  • The lagoons in the area add to the scenic beauty of the region. The blue lakes of water with their tranquil setting attract a good number of holiday makers.
