Lanai and Molokai
Separated by the Auau Channel, Maui, Molokai, and Lanai are known as Maui Nui (Maui County). Although Maui is the more recognised of the three, the lesser-known islands of Lanai and Molokai each have their own unique traits and attractions.
Lanai is a private getaway featuring two luxurious resorts: The Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay and the Four Seasons Resort Lodge at Koele, as well as the historic Hotel Lanai. For a secluded romantic escape or a 4-wheel drive adventure, Lanai is just a ferry ride away from neighbouring Maui.
Hulopoe Bay – This picturesque beach fronts the Four Seasons Resort at Manele Bay. Walk along beautiful tidal pools and watch for friendly spinner dolphins.
Keahiakawelo – Known as the “Garden of the Gods”, this otherworldly landscape is both serene and surreal.
Kaiolohia (Shipwreck Beach) – 4-wheel drive off the beaten path to Kaiolohia, or Shipwreck Beach, where a large ship is beached to this day.
Undeveloped and unspoiled, Molokai is an island rooted in Native Hawaiian culture. Visit Molokai to participate in a variety of outdoor adventures, experience authentic local culture, and to see Hawaii back in time.
Kalaupapa National Historical Park – Located between some of the largest sea cliffs in the world, this isolated peninsula has great historical significance.
Kaunakakai – Meet the locals in this quaint town, the center of activity in Molokai
