Lord Howe Island is a slice of tropical paradise set in the Tasman Sea, midway between Australia and New Zealand. Somewhat off the beaten path, this UNESCO World Heritage site was formed by volcanic activity millions of years ago. Two jagged mountains soaring over the picturesque lagoon make for breathtaking vistas on this remote island. Pristine beaches, walking trails, and stunning coral reefs beckon you to explore it to your heart’s content. While thrilling water sports are a must for adventure-lovers, bird watching and biking are perfect for those seeking a slower pace. The island is also home to golf courses and recreational centers offering bowling facilities. With communal barbecue facilities and cut firewood available at all beaches, a seafood picnic may be just the thing. For a taste of local flavors, stop by one of the elegant restaurants or cozy eateries in town. With limited internet connectivity and a lack of mobile phone signals, this island offers the perfect opportunity to simply switch off and commune with nature!
