See why Lanai is Hawaii’s Hidden Paradise
Are you tired of the hustle and bustle of the city life? Does the mundane life compel you to think that some days you wish you could just get away? If you answered yes to both of these questions, you should definitely try and visit one of the more beautiful Hawaiian islands – Lanai. Touched by serenity, this place is truly a beautiful place where you can get away from it all and recharge your batteries. This island is perfect for those romantic couples out there as you can indulge in complete pleasure and luxury and enjoy the peaceful seclusion that has earned Lanai the name “the most enticing island.” Enthralling scenery’s await you in this heavenly gateway. Once you visit Lanai, you are bound to fall in love with it.
Lanai is a perfect place for a vacation for the nature lovers. Although most people come to Lanai for total relaxation, this island has something to offer those who have a craving for nature while on their trip. If you are a fan of golfing while on vacation, there are two famous golf courses on Lanai – The Challenge at Manele and The Experience at Koele. Both spots offer sight seeing that is found nowhere else on earth. Another fascinating attraction is the Hulopoe Beach Park. Whether you look for the wonderful beach or the protected marine life, a day spent at Hulopoe is something that won’t be forgotten very easily.
Keahiakawelo, also called “Garden of the Gods,” is an extremely interesting and one of the most mysterious places in Lanai. The very first thing that you notice as soon as you step into this dusty red landscape is the absence of sound. There is no trace of life here with there also being no vegetation and no animals. This spot is only covered with huge ancient boulders and small rocks. If you do get a chance to take a Lanai vacation, I highly recommend visiting here.
For experienced scuba divers, a trip to Cathedrals is a memorable event. Highly captivating, this partly collapsed lava tube is a must-dive for those who love to go scuba diving. Another activity you can do on your trip is checking out Shipwreck beach where you can see an actual wrecked ship. Marooned on a reef just offshore, stands a massive World War II Liberty ship, that you can view from the beach. The marvelous Puu Pehe (Sweetheart Rock) is a rock island situated on Lanai’s south shore and is another great spot to check out. This rock island constitutes one of Lanai’s natural wonders. At present, the Lanai city is a tidy old city, home to warm local citizens, a few shops and boutiques and some favored dining places. The town square springs to life every Saturday when the local growers showcase their collection flowers, fruits and vegetables.
It is true that Lanai allows its visitors to explore unspoiled natural treasures. But the expectations of those who seek adventure won’t fall short. Swimming and snorkeling at the pristine Hulopoe Bay, hiking the marvelous Munro Trail, discovering miles of unknown destinations by four-wheel drive are things not to be missed. If these activities sound like to much “work,” don’t worry as this island is best noted for a single activity – relaxing. Caress your senses with the welcoming embrace of a luxurious spa, enjoy the heartwarming solitude of the back nine, or indulge in the windswept serenity of a remote beach. After all, Lanai provides you with ample opportunities to make use of the best.
So come and dive into the ocean of happiness at Lanai. Take a careful plunge and you might land up on the island of joy. There is a lot of things waiting to be discovered by you at this wonderful Hawaiian island and it should be interesting to see how things change with billionaire Larry Ellison now owning the island as he has plans to invest heavily in Lanai to improve it.
