Everyone’s idea of paradise is different, and because of that you will find everyone saying they have their own version of the P word in a destination, probably heading back there time and time again. Despite that, there are some places on this planet of ours which everyone agrees on, perhaps Bali, or the Caribbean, for example.
Have you heard of Lord Howe Island?
If not, you’re missing out on paradise for sure!
Lord Howe Island is located around 600km off the coast of Australia, and it can be easily reached by plane from Sydney, Brisbane, and Port Macquarie. This stunningly beautiful island has been a World Heritage Site since 1982, and once visit, or even a Google of its images, will show you exactly why!
If you’re searching for a destination which is secluded, feels cut off from the world (in a good way), ideal for R&R, and blindingly beautiful all at the same time, then this is your stop-off point. There are many places you can stay on the island in total and utter relaxation, and Pinetrees Lodge is the total epitome of seclusion and luxury. For a special occasion, or perhaps even just a break from the busy and hectic pace of life back home, this is your number one option.
A destination which is so laid back may come across as a little boring, but Lord Howe Island certainly has enough to keep all ages occupied, with most activities being outdoors. If you love diving, there are some top class opportunities here, with snorkelling and fishing fantastic options too. You can walk around the coastline, taking in the amazing sunsets perhaps, or you can head off on your bike and cycle around the set trails. If you want to learn how to surf, or continue your hobby, this is a great place to give it a go, and you can also chill the hell out on one of the world class golf courses too.
If you need proof of the total and utterly luxury and beauty of Lord Howe Island, Pinetrees was voted as the ‘Best Affordable Resort in Australia’ in November 2014 by readers of the popular Australian Traveller Magazine. That is great news for anyone who is on a bit of a budget but who still wants to enjoy the same level of luxury, pampering, and R&R as the rather rich!
Lord Howe Island has that true castaway vibe about it, from the moment you arrive, and if you attempt to let your cares or worries follow you here then you’re making a huge mistake; having said that, it’s virtually impossible to be stressed about anything when you are surrounded by natural beauty at this level!
