Only in Lanai
Peaceful, beautiful and entirely private, Lanai offers a diverse landscape unparalleled by other Hawaiian isles. Discover the best of the island with activities for everyone, from the casual wanderer to the off-road adventurer.
DIVE INTO A PROTECTED MARINE PRESERVE
Located steps away from the Resort, Hulopoe Bay is one of Hawaii’s rare protected marine preserves. The waters of this aquatic sanctuary are exceptionally clear and the coral reefs are virtually undisturbed, making it an ideal location for snorkelling and diving. Spinner dolphins and colourful tropical reef fish swim close to shore, and, during winter months, humpback whales make dramatic appearances. Complimentary snorkels, fins and masks are available to guests, and a wide selection of introductory and advanced snorkel and dive excursions are offered.
VACATION LIKE ROYALTY
The 18th-century King Kamehameha spent his summers in Lanai. After conquering the island, along with Maui and Molokai, he retreated to Kaunolu Village, one of his favourite fishing spots, on Lanai’s southern coast. Here you’ll find Shark Fin Cove, the remains of a sacred temple and Kahekili’s Leap, where warriors would demonstrate their bravery by diving off the 60-foot (18-metre) cliff.
TAKE THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED – 4X4 OFF-ROADING ADVENTURE
Discover the beauty of Lanai’s rugged trails on a guided Polaris RZR or Ranger tour. During the two-hour adventure, you’ll explore the island’s changing landscapes and historic attractions, some of which have only recently been uncovered by cultural preservationists. Amid visits to ancient temples and heritage sites, your guide will point out ecological and historical wonders unique to Lanai.
You can also rent your own 4x4 vehicle to discover the back roads of Lanai. With only 30 miles (48 kilometres) of paved road, the island offers plenty of opportunities to get off the beaten path. Travel across the diverse landscape while taking in the stunning scenery of the Munro Trail, Keahkiawelo (Garden of the Gods), Polihua Beach and Kaiolohia (Shipwreck Beach).
