The 6th largest island in Hawaii but sparsely populated with only around 3000 inhabitants, Lanai is a wonderful alternative to the tourism of the main island. Highly rustic and with few hotels, the island appeals mainly to tourists looking for a different Hawaiian experience where the sights are harder to find and you can only travel around on a jeep. It is also very beautiful and home to two world-class golf courses so you shouldn’t run out of things to do in paradise.
The main town is called Lanai City but it is essentially a small town at heart. This is where you will find anything that you need as there is little else on the island in terms of facilities. One of the most interesting elements of the island is the enormous shipwreck which has been left to rot on what is now called ‘Shipwreck Beach’. Although unsafe to swim in the surrounding waters and essentially wild, there is a real beauty about the starkness of this beach with the huge rusting hulk of a boat not far from shore. It is also a very peaceful beach to while away the hours.
