South Lanai

Sunny South Lanai is where you’ll find a mix of luxury and tranquility. Here you’ll find Hulopoe Bay and Manele Bay, a beautiful marine life conservation area where spinner dolphins can frequently be spotted soaring from the sea. Rising between the two bays is the Lanai landmark Puu Pehe. And fronting Hulopoe Beach is the exquisite Four Seasons Resort Lanai where you can find a full-service spa, fine dining and the Jack Nicklaus designed Manele Golf Course.

You can also get off the beaten path and four-wheel drive to Kaunolu, King Kamehameha’s summer fishing retreat on Lanai’s southern cliffs. Or take a drive to Kaumalapau Harbor to see an incredible Lanai sunset. Whether you arrive at Lanai Airport or Manele Harbor, your enticing getaway to South Lanai awaits.
