North Lanai

Only 30 miles of road in Lanai are paved, leaving 400 miles of dirt road to explore by 4-wheel drive, much of which is in North Lanai. Off road to Kaiolohia, also known as Shipwreck Beach, to see a derelict ship stuck in the rocky waters of Lanai’s north shore. Just north of Kanepuu Preserve is Keahiakawelo, or the Garden of the Gods, featuring the lunar landscapes incongruous to the sand and surf of Hawaii. Finally continue your bumpy drive to secluded Polihua Beach, where you may find yourself all alone on a 2-mile stretch of sand.
