Description

For your next vacation, keep things interesting. Vacation in a volcano. Seriously. Off the coast of Australia, Lord Howe Island is actually the top of an extinct underwater volcano. Visiting the small island-with a population of only 350-is strictly controlled as only 400 tourists are allowed to visit at a time. While this makes it a bit tougher to get there, it means that you won't be elbowing your way through a crowded beach filled with sweaty tourists. It also makes it a safer place for families to vacation and a more isolated, romantic place for couples. This island is so diverse and stunning that you'll want to spend your entire time outdoors. Thankfully, your outdoor options are pretty much limitless-bushwalking tours, deep-sea fishing, swimming, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, golfing, bicycling, outdoor dining, and even reef walking to name a few.
