Lanai, the Pineapple Isle
As the smallest inhabited island travelers may visit, Lanai spans only 141 square miles and is known for its epicurean dining, luxurious pampering, and unconventional outdoor activities. Lanai feels like a private paradise where you can relax and relish the beauty of the island. Have you ever wanted to pretend you were in one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies? Well, take some time to visit Shipwreck Beach, a six-mile-long beach that once served as the final destination for more than a dozen shipwrecks. Do you love golf? Make sure you take time to play Manele Golf Course at the Four Season’s Manele Bay while visiting Lanai. It was designed by the famous golfer, Jack Nicklaus. If you’re looking for a secluded beach, then Polihua Beach should be on your list. It’s a 2-mile pristine gold sand beach that is only a 30-minute drive from Garden of the Gods, an out of this world place with a surreal lunar landscape. Visiting Lanai lends itself to a sense of privacy, tranquility, and contemplation.
