Situated in the South Pacific Ocean, around 700km north east of Sydney, Australia, Lord Howe Island is a small, breathtakingly beautiful island, measuring just 11km long and 2.8km at its widest point. Included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1982, the island is surrounded by a reef-fringed lagoon, rolling surf and the world’s southern-most coral reef. Lord Howe Island has around 350 permanent residents with visitors limited to 400 at any one time. Lord Howe is a pristine natural environment with around three-quarters of the island preserved as permanent national and marine park.

Capella Lodge Lord Howe Island

Barefoot
luxury

Nine intimate suites complement the island’s pristine natural environment and provide a luxurious, serene refuge. Spacious, light filled interiors feature timber floors, marine ply joinery and custom furniture pieces that create a sophisticated beach house ambience.

Things to Do

Getting around
Only 400 visitors are allowed on Lord Howe at any one time, with a resident population of 382 people recorded in the 2016 census. Just about everything is within walking or cycling distance, so it’s uncommon to see cars. Lord Howe is only 11km long and between 0.3 and 2km wide, so it’s possible to cycle end to end in as little as 25 minutes. With a 25kmh speed limit, everyone always waves ‘hello’ as they pass!

Capella offers complimentary adult mountain bikes for guests to explore the island at leisure. A public phone in town provides free local calls, ideal for SOS pick-ups if needed! An electric buggy is also available to hire from the lodge (note, bookings are managed on-property). A limited number of hire cars is available with local operators so bookings are best arranged prior to arrival.

Ned’s Beach
Ned’s Beach is one of Lord Howe’s most postcard-perfect beaches, with a stretch of white sand for walking, a reef with access channels perfect for snorkelling and a boat house stocked with snorkelling gear and body boards which are available for hire on an honesty system.
Ned’s is also famous for the fish that swim right up into the shallows to be fed. It’s always a thrill for visitors as well as locals to buy a dollar bag of sustainable fish food from the boat house and wade in knee deep to feed the fish. There’s an instant frenzy in the water as mullet, wrasse, garfish, silver-drummer, spangled-emperor and kingfish vie for their share.

There are over 60 world-class dive sites around Lord Howe, most located just a short boat ride (10-20 minutes) from shore.

Scuba Diving

Arguably the island’s most spectacular dive is Ball’s Pyramid, the world’s tallest sea stack whose treasures extend deep below the surface. With excellent water visibility, divers can except to see huge schools of fish, among them the rare deep-water Ballina Angelfish. Dives at Ball’s Pyramid average 25 metres in depth and range from drift dives and cave dives to simply following a coral wall.

Surfing

Shallow coral reef on the edge of the Pacific Ocean means one thing – waves.
Lord Howe picks up powerful groundswell from the Southern and Pacific oceans throughout the year. There are ten regularly surfed waves, and some are world-class on their day. In small conditions, there’s something for everyone.

Glass Bottom boat
A tour of the lagoon on a glass-bottom boat provides a close-up view of Lord Howe’s vibrant, diverse corals and kaleidoscope of tropical fish.
Lord Howe Environmental Tours runs the Coral Viewing and Snorkelling Tour, an experience of the lagoon’s reef and coral holes. The two-hour tour explores the coral seascape and introduces visitors to some of the more unusual lagoon inhabitants including the endemic double-header wrasse, stingrays and turtles. This tour provides an optional snorkelling experience at Erscott’s Hole.
