If you are ever given the opportunity to travel here - take it! It is a rare natural beauty in a world often overloaded with crime and violence. The island is small in size - but not in any other sense. The locals have big personalities, the scenes are breathtaking and from the moment you arrive - you're in heaven. You can't help but be swept up in the laidback and friendly vibe. Everyone is happy to share their 'best spots' and ensure you're getting the most from the island. The main mode of transport is a bike and with only a couple of hills it means you appreciate every sight and sound, rather than simply drive by.
There are many activities including snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking, fish feeding and the endless walking trails that take you to some of the most untouched parts of the island.
The weather is also a major feature, its beautiful one day, stunning the next! There are a wide variety of accommodation options and also various places to dine.
There really isn't a negative thing to say about Lord Howe Island... other than that one day you do have to go home!
