Four-Wheel Driving on Lānaʻi

Lānaʻi offers 400 miles of road to explore by four-wheel drive. North Lānaʻi has the bulk of off-road paths to explore. The Kānepuʻu Preserve is 4.8 miles and 20 minutes away from Lānaʻi City on a dirt path. Continue down the road for another five minutes and you’ll arrive at the lunar landscape of Keahiakawelo (Garden of the Gods). For the truly adventurous, travel about 35 minutes and 4.7 miles even further to reach the remote white sands of Polihua Beach. 

Head northeast from Lānaʻi City on another rocky road to explore the isolated shores of Kaiolohia (Shipwreck Beach). It takes about 30 minutes to get to this beach after an exhilarating, bumpy ride. Just avoid driving too far onto the beach — visitors have been known to get their vehicles stuck in the sand. South Lānaʻi offers an off-road adventure to the historic Kaunolū, home to King Kamehameha’s favorite summer fishing retreat overlooking Lānaʻi’s southern cliffs.

Enjoy breathtaking views of Lana'i's uplands and embrace its cultural and historical offerings on a two-hour guided UTV tour with Lānaʻi Adventures. Customized private excursions are also available. Please visit Lānaʻi Adventures at the Four Seasons Resort to make reservations. You can also make reservations for your 4-wheel drive vehicle in advance at the Dollar Rent A Car in Lānaʻi City. Please speak to your concierge about directions before you get started and avoid driving in bad weather.
