During our visit to Lanai in February, we met another couple visiting Lanai for the first time. The wife asked, “There’s not much to do on this island, is there?” I almost gasped in surprise. You see, we’re now on Lanai for our fifth visit and I know we’ll leave with a to-do list for next time.
I suppose that it’s natural to assume that there’s not much to do on Lanai, given that it’s the smallest Hawaiian Island that you can visit. Honestly, there is more than meets the eye. Over the years, I’ve covered many exciting Lanai adventures, like horseback riding, outstanding snorkeling, mammal watching, excellent hikes, clay shooting and off-road adventures in a Jeep to remote, untouched places.
We’ve rented a Jeep twice for off-roading, but we’d love to rent one again to go as far as we can go along the east coast of the island.
Of course, we feel it’s a good idea to take some time to get to know Lanai’s culture, enjoy some great beach time at Hulopo’e Bay, and get some pampering with an oceanside massage. Then, in the evening, catch some live entertainment and enjoy excellent farm-to-table Hawaii cuisine.
So, I hope you can see that there’s lots of fun activities and adventures to try on Lanai. I’ve not even mentioned the opportunities to learn to play the ukulele, try hula and lei making at the Four Seasons Resorts of Lanai.
Even if someday, we accomplish all the activities Lanai has to offer, we’ll still be drawn back to try some of our favorites again. Plus, there’s always something new or different to try on the island.
