Lana'i is one of the islands that makes up the state of Hawaii, in the Pacific Ocean and is the smallest inhabited island in this Pacific chain. Lana'i is located about 9 miles west of Maui. Formally known as the “Pineapple Island”, it’s now the place where Hawaiians go to get away from it all.
With very few full time residents Lana'i is a quiet place to visit, but has much to offer:
Popular activities include: skeet shooting, horseback riding, whale watching, world class spas, and great golf
Sightseeing highlights include the secluded Shipwreck Beach, known for it's offshore wreck of a WW11 tanker, and views of the surrounding islands. Polihua Beach attracts green turtles. Inland find the Garden of the Gods, a unique rocky landscape.
Accommodation is scarce on Lana'i but in and around Lana'i City you can find rental homes, and the Hotel Lana'i. More upmarket are the two Four Seasons hotels- The Four Seasons Lodge at Ko'ele, and the fabulous Four Seasons Lana'i at Manele Bay. Both are world class establishments.
