Lanai Itineraries

Whether you’re visiting Lanai for a day trip or for an extended vacation, find an itinerary of must see and must do attractions and activities to fit your schedule.

Day-Trip Itinerary
Most who take the ferry from Lahaina for a day-trip to Lanai inevitably long to come back. Many visit for the day to play at Lanai’s world-class golf courses, the Manele Golf Course and the Experience at Koele. 

For others, Hulopoe Bay is a mandatory stop, once named America’s Best Beach and fronting the Four Seasons Resort Lanai. Swim, sunbathe and take a short hike past the tide pools to Puu Pehe (Sweetheart Rock). Then travel to the cool uplands of Lanai City for shopping, lunch and for a peek at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai, The Lodge at Koele. During the winter and early spring be sure to look for humpback whales on your ferry ride back to Maui.

Fronting the Four Seasons Resort Lanai, this protected bay is home to incredible tide pools and is a great place to view dolphins.

When staying a few days, be sure to take advantage of all the activities and amenities that Lanai’s resorts have to offer. From fine Hawaii Regional Cuisine dining to adventures ranging from horseback riding to clay shooting, there’s plenty to do right at your hotel. But be sure to rent a 4-wheel drive so you can explore Lanai’s 400 miles of unpaved road. Drive up to the scenic Munro Trail or take the bumpy ride to Kaiolohia (Shipwreck Beach) to discover some off the beaten path treasures.

For scuba divers, the underwater lava tubes called the Lanai Cathedrals are a popular attraction. And for fishermen, there’s no better way to spend an afternoon than casting off of Kaumalapau Harbor and watching the Lanai sunset.
