Lanai and Molokai

Separated by the Auau Channel, MauiMolokai, 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:
