Hi I am looking for a relaxing getaway and have always wanted to go to LHI. Would it be enjoyable on my own, or better to wait until I can convince someone to join?

You'll be fine solo. Bike around the island, admire the views, walk on the beach. If you climb Mt Gower you will go up in a small group / with a guide anyway.

If you prefer company when snorkelling, treat yourself to a tour, there are some good ones and you'll get to see more with a local.

Bon voyage!

It's a great place to go solo.

The pace is relaxed and friendly and people strike up conversations with you.

The 4 location lagoon snorkel is a good trip to go solo.
