On Hawaii’s smallest inhabited island, you won’t find a single stop light. Rush hour at the Blue Ginger Café resembles a family reunion, as friends and neighbours share greetings of “aloha” over breakfast. Stretches of wild coastline hug a landscape of Cook Island pine forests and rocky, arid plains. And spinner dolphins outnumber snorkellers in Hulopoe Bay.

Unspoiled, easy-going and endlessly beautiful, this is the Hawaii captured in vintage postcards – part adventure and part romance, with opportunities to experience local culture at every turn. At Four Seasons Resort Lanai, perched on the southern coast, you’ll experience the best of the island. Venture into Lanai City to shop local boutiques, play a round of golf on a championship course, explore the island’s stunning terrain on horseback, and set sail for a cruise on the Pacific Ocean.

Whether you’re seeking an outdoor adventure, a romantic escape or a cultural discovery, you’ll find it on Lanai.
