Hawaii – Lanai

Things to do in Hawaii – Lana’i :

  • The hiking on Lana’i can be quite varied since it has cool pine forests as well as more typical coastal hikes. I suggest the Koloiki Ridge Trail or the Kaunolu Trail.
  • Lana’i has over 100 miles of unpaved roads.  All you need is a jeep rental and a grand off roads adventure awaits where you can see a failed shipwreck, the alien landscape of the Garden of the Gods, tide pools and long stretches of isolated beaches.
  • Exploring near Lopa beach is a great way to see the sea turtles that are so prevalent on Lana’i. Take a hike on the beach or try a kayaking adventure.

Hotels in Hawaii – Lana’i :

  • The welcoming and cozy Hotel Lana’i is an old plantation hotel used originally to host the Dole pineapple executives and management.
  • The Lodge at Ko’ele takes advantage of the pine wooded environment to create a lodge-like atmosphere – not what you would expect in Hawaii, but lovely nonetheless with afternoon tea and Hawaiian cultural programs.
  • Manele Bay Resort boasts some impressive landscaping with a tropical open, breezy and light feel and the best bed, linens and slippers ever!

Food in Hawaii – Lana’i :

  • Lana’i City Grille has a great menu that highlights the local seafood as well as meat which showcases the diversity of Lana’i perfectly.
