Where to stay in Norfolk Island

Guesthouses and bed and breakfasts remain the best mid-range options. If you need luxuries like a swimming pool and an onsite restaurant, opt for one of the island's resorts. Burnt Pine, the central settlement, serves as the most popular place to stay, offering the best access to Norfolk Island's small airport. For scenic ocean views, stay in a hillside lodge near the coastal village of Kingston, the island's capital.
