Lanai Story Ideas

Lanai - The Ultimate Vacation Destination

From Maui across the Auau Channel, the island of Lanai appears as a rounded hump, like a whale cradled in a calm and gentle sea. From Lanai, the West Maui Mountains are powerful and purple, an extension of itself nine miles of ocean away. In prehistoric times, Lanai was one of several islands joined to Maui. Now it’s a small, graceful, sparsely populated destination with its own strong identity: Hawaii’s most enticing island. Forgotten by time, an anachronism in modern Hawaii, Lanai is a singular escape, a former pineapple plantation that has evolved seamlessly into the ultimate vacation destination.

Instead of high-rises, stoplights, traffic jams and shopping centers, there is one small town square and easygoing people whose way of life is centered outdoors. On Lanai, 89,600 acres of countryside invite fishing, swimming, diving, hiking, hunting and riding horseback. This means adventure coming and going, a journey of discovery even before you set foot on the island. You can fly a jet, take a ferry, or sail to Lanai by catamaran. 

You can stay a day or a long time.  However you choose to arrive, you’ll find that getting there is half the fun, and staying there is a grand adventure.
