Lanai and Molokai

 

Double Lines

Separated by the Auau Channel, Maui, Molokai, and Lanai are known as Maui Nui (Maui County). Although Maui is the more recognized of the three, the lesser-known islands of Lanai and Molokai each have their own unique traits and attractions.

Lanai
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 neighboring Maui.

Lanai Attractions:

Hulopoe Bay
– This picturesque beach fronts the Four Seasons Resort at Manele Bay. Walk along beautiful tide 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.

Molokai

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.

Molokai Attractions:

Kalaupapa National Historical Park
– Located between some of the largest sea cliffs in the world, this isolated peninsula has great historical significance.

Kaunakakai
