Directions & Maps
At the centre of the Hawaiian archipelago, a few miles west of Maui, the pristine island of Lanai is an unspoiled paradise of spectacular sea coast and enchanting highland forest. The island is 98% privately owned – providing a sense of uncrowded natural calm unique within the Hawaiian islands.
Lanai is approximately 13 miles (21 kilometres) wide and 18 miles (29 kilometres) long, with ground elevations varying from sea level to more than 3,400 feet (1,036 metres). The central landscape offers mist-shrouded mountains and forests of Cook Island pines where wild deer roam freely. The coastline is ringed by secluded white-sand beaches, rugged red lava cliffs and crystal-clear waters. A place of deep cultural significance, Lanai features many historic sites, old fishing villages and unique topographical attractions. The island’s only community is the quaint plantation town of Lanai City, with a full-time population of just 3,000.
For nearly a century, Lanai was home to Hawaii’s largest pineapple plantation and was known as the Pineapple Island for its fields of golden pineapples; now the island offers ocean-side relaxation and recreation.
