The Beautiful Isle Of Lanai

Aug 17, 2007
It can be found in the centre of the Pacific Ocean just below the Tropic of Cancer and is the only Hawaiian Island from which five others can be viewed.
The island came into being when the volcano Palawai erupted one and a half million years ago. The Isle is therefore covered in spectacular red lava cliffs, sharp gorges, shady Cook pines and white beaches.

The Island is only about one hundred and forty square miles, thirteen miles wide and eighteen miles long, with a coastline that extends for forty seven miles. With regard to road networks, it is not expected that there is much more than thirty miles of road. The main city is Lanai City and is located in the middle, just north of the Lanai Airport, off Highway four hundred and forty Lanai supports a population of only about three thousand people.

Lanai Hawaii is accessible by air or ferry. Both Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air provide daily services between the little island and the gateway cities of the Western USA, with a complete cargo service. Alternatively a ferry runs between the island and Maui at least five times a day.

It is the ideal place to relax and to come and refresh the spirit. The beautiful Isle of Lanai, from the moment you set foot on her soil, envelops you in a warm welcome. It is a place of solitude and a place where people can get a chance to experience nature, the breathtaking views, the romantic sunsets and finally the mesmerizing star configurations that fill the tropical nights.

Residents are friendly, enjoying a social outdoor lifestyle that cannot be matched and this is magically framed by the beauty of the golden beaches and vibrant vegetation.

On this little island you will find little hustle and bustle, friendly and inviting dining and accommodation options and a relaxed nightlife. The island has remained an unspoiled oasis that has a characteristic small town feel, the only exceptions to this are the two luxury resorts that were recently developed

It was once the mere capital of pineapple production and now becoming an international tropical holiday destination. Lanais biggest selling point is that it is the perfect getaway location.

Even celebrities have succumbed to its rustic charm and brilliance, this is where billionaire Bill Gates had his wedding.

This island is honestly not short of things to do. Once you have experienced the sites why not some deep sea fishing, some horseback riding, whale watching do, play a couple rounds of golf on two professionally designed golf courses, or simply do nothing but put your feet up.
