Rock these 19 Things to Do in Lanai, Hawaii

Lanai is known as the “pineapple island” (because of its past pineapple growing industry).  It’s a small Hawaiian island off the coast of Maui—just 13 miles wide and  18 miles long.

But despite its postage-stamp size, there are a surprising number of things to do in Lanai. At the same time, it’s the perfect place to get away from it all.

So when planning your Hawaii trip, you may want to visit Lanai—either as a Lanai day trip from Maui or for a luxury escape (staying a few days or more).

Bask on Hulopoe Beach

It’s walking distance from the ferry dock. The white-sand beach is absolutely idyllic. Keep your eyes peeled for spinner dolphins that frolic in the bay too!

This great 5-mile roundtrip hiking trail (easy to moderate) winds along a mountain ridge through pine forests high up in the hills before opening up to sweeping ocean views.

Hike the Koloiki Ridge Trail

Walk to Sweetheart Rock

The trail follows the coastline to an 80-foot-tall craggy rock formation shooting up out of the water. This walk takes about 15 to 20 minutes each way.

Explore Lanai City

The sleepy small town of Lanai City sits at 1,645 feet above sea level. Stroll about the town’s square, and you’ll discover a few shops and several sweet cafés and restaurants.

Get cultured at the Lanai Culture & Heritage Center

Historic old photos, maps and artifacts celebrate the land, people and history of Lanai. There are even a few pineapples growing outside in the garden.
