Lanai Island is maybe dwarfed by Maui, but it’s the 6th largest of the Hawaiian islands. Pineapples rule on Lanai, but resort hotels are springing up to make the most of the island’s beachfront.
You’ll find a golf course on Lanai, and a hotel built by the famous pineapple mogul James Dole. What you won’t find is traffic lights, department stores, paved roads or big-city bustle of any kind.
Get around off-road by 4x4, take a stroll through laid-back Lanai City, go horseback riding or play a round of golf.
Lanai Island lies10 miles (16 kilometers) off the west coast of Maui, opposite the historic old whaling port of Lahaina. It’s a 30 minute ferry trip from the mainland.
The only town on the island is Lanai City, and the only way to get around is by 4x4.
