Wide open plains dotted with Cook pine trees give Central Lānaʻi a more rustic feel than the other Hawaiian Islands. The higher elevations of Central Lānaʻi also make for cooler temperatures similar to Upcountry Maui. If you’re traveling to Central Lānaʻi from Hulopoʻe Bay you’ll pass through the Pālāwai Basin, an area once covered with pineapple fields. To the east, the Munro Trail leads to Lānaʻihale, Lānaʻi’s highest peak.
The geographic and cultural epicenter of the island is in Lānaʻi City. Centered around Dole Park, you’ll discover one of a kind shops, local dining and unique art galleries in Lānaʻi City. You’ll also find the historic Hotel Lānaʻi, which has welcomed guests since 1923. Just up the road are the Stables at Kōʻele and the Lānaʻi Archery and Shooting range, featuring horseback riding, archery and sporting clays.
