The history and story of Lanai is nothing short of fascinating. Having been at times a Mormon colony, a ranch and the world's largest pineapple plantation, a visit to this island is well worth the trip.
Spend time lounging on the uncrowded beaches, hiking the rustic Munro Trail or enjoying a round or two of golf on championship courses. Some of the ‘must see’ sights on Lanai are the lava pinnacles of the Garden of the Gods and the ghost town of Keomuku, once a thriving sugar estate. Nearby Shipwreck Beach, is excellent for beachcombing.
Here too, you can watch whales offshore in the winter months and see the ancient Luahiwa Petroglyphs, considered the best-preserved in all Hawaii. Lanai is accessible by ferry from the historic whaling town of Lahaina on Maui, it makes a fascinating day trip too and will give you an insight into a truly untouched part of the Hawaiian Islands.
