Types of Coral Reef?

Coral Reefs are such as beautiful part of nature. From the Great Barrier Reef in Australia to the 2nd largest barrier reef in a little country called Belize, the four types of coral reefs can be found. First, there is ‘atoll’ which is horse-shoe or circular in shape. Second, there is ‘fringing’ reef which is usually found very closed to land and is also the most common. Third, you have heard of ‘barrier’ reefs which are like the fringing reef, but are much larger and they are found farther away from the shore. Fourth, there is ‘patch’ reefs that typically are within a lagoon. For more information see here:
