getting around on LHI

My husband & I are in our 70's & we were wondering if we could go to LHI & enjoy it even though neither of us can ride a bicycle

yes you can still enjoy it.

My tip would be to stay somewhere reasonably central (avoid Leanda lei area etc near Joys store)

For dinner the accom places all run a drop off service to the restaurants which in turn will drop you back at your accom.

I would consider at least a days car hire (book early) so you can get around and see a few more places

Yes, definitely book early. I inquired a couple of weeks ago about car rental and was told they had two days available until May.

If you look on this map

lordhoweisland.info/travel-essentials/map-2/

Blue Lagoon lodge is right in the main street and you can walk to both settlement and Neds beach. The is a hill both ways as the lodges are mostly along the ridge there.

If you want to be closer to just one beach then Milky way is right near settlement, and the walk up to town is a bit uphill. It is too far to walk to neds beach easily IMHO
