About Lanai

Lanai has one of Hawaii’s best beaches, a golden yellow arch of sand fringed with palms, and surrounding a magical marine reserve. Lanai City is the only city on the island and there’s just one airport too, so there’s not too many options when it comes to choosing the best places to stay on Lana’i, but our Guru’s recommendation for the best place is a great option for both families and couples.

What Not To Miss

  • You’re just a short stroll from an archaeological site and from Manele Harbour, which is a great place to start a sailing or fishing excursion - though the fishing can’t start until you’re well out of the marine reserve.
  • They also have a dive school, but you can see a great deal with just a snorkel.
  • Kick back and relax on the beach - with it's golden sand and clear water - it's ideal for paddling, snorkeling and seeing some of the local fish.
  • The Lanai Cat Sanctuary is great for animal lovers with hundreds of friendly cats in a large sunny sanctuary - perfect for something a bit different this holiday.
  • Alternatively, pay a visit to the Mike Carroll Gallery featuring numerous works of art from award-winning artists. The collections are diverse with everything from fine art photography to bowls crafted from local wood.
