The Hawaiian Islands


You won't find a single traffic light here and that's exactly how the people of Lanai like it. Only nine miles from Maui yet a world away, Lanai can feel like two places. The first is found in luxurious resorts where visitors can indulge in world-class amenities and championship-level golf at The Challenge at Manele and The Experience at Koele. The other is found bouncing along the island's rugged back-roads in a 4-wheel drive exploring off the beaten path treasures like Keahiakawelo (Garden of the Gods) and Polihua Beach. In fact, only 30 miles of Lanai's roads are paved.

The smallest inhabited island in Hawaii, Lanai offers big enticements to its visitors. From the stunning views atop the pine-lined Munro Trail to watching the acrobatic spinner dolphins from romantic Hulopoe Bay, Lanai is a special place where you're sure to find serenity, adventure and intimacy. If you want to get away from it all, get away to Lanai.

Getting to Lanai  

There is no direct service to Lanai from the continental United States. Instead, fly to Honolulu International Airport (HNL) or Kahului Airport (OGG) in Maui, where you can connect to several local airlines with service to Lanai Airport (LNY). For those flying into Maui, you can travel to Lanai's Manele Harbor from Maui's Lahaina Harbor through the Expeditions ferry service. There are 5 round-trips daily. Ferry trips take roughly an hour.

Main resort towns  

North Lanai

Only 30 miles of road in Lanai are paved, leaving 400 miles of dirt road to explore by 4-wheel drive, much of which is in North Lanai. Off road to Kaiolohia, also known as Shipwreck Beach, to see a derelict ship stuck in the rocky waters of Lanai's north shore. Just north of Kanepuu Preserve is Keahiakawelo, or the Garden of the Gods, featuring the lunar landscapes incongruous to the sand and surf of Hawaii. Finally continue your bumpy drive to secluded Polihua Beach, where you may find yourself all alone on a 2-mile stretch of sand.

South Lanai

Sunny South Lanai is where you'll find a mix of luxury and tranquility. Here you'll find Hulopoe Bay and Manele Bay, a beautiful marine life conservation area where spinner dolphins can frequently be spotted soaring from the sea. Rising between the two bays is the Lanai landmark Puu Pehe, or Sweetheart Rock. And fronting Hulopoe Beach is the exquisite Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay where you can find a full-service spa, fine dining and the Jack Nicklaus designed Challenge at Manele.

You can also get off the beaten path and 4-wheel drive to Kaunolu, King Kamehameha's summer fishing retreat on Lanai's southern cliffs.
