Lanai Sights

You can easily explore Lanai City on foot. To access the rest of this untamed island, rent a four-wheel-drive vehicle. Take a map, be sure you have a full tank, and bring a snack and plenty of water. Ask the rental agency or your hotel's concierge about road conditions before you set out. Although roads may be dry on the coast, they may be impassable upland. It's always good to carry a cell phone.

The main road on Lanai, Highway 440, refers to both Kaumalapau Highway and Manele Road.
