Lanai is the sixth largest island of the main islands the make up the 50th. State.  It’s called the “Pineapple Island” due to its past when it was home to an island-wide pineapple plantation. Today it is mostly undeveloped and much of the roads are unpaved.

There are 2 luxury  hotels on the island both by Four Seasons;  Manele Bay and The Lodge at Koele. There are also two famous golf courses on Kauai, one on each Four Seasons property.  There are no traffic lights on the island and most of its sights are accessible only by 4 wheel drive.

If your idea of a romantic getaway is a luxury resort off the beaten path then Lanai is definitely the island for you.  Here is a list of romantic things to do on Lanai.

Have a picnic at Hulopoe Bay Beach.  Snorkel in its crystal clear water to observe the reef marine life below.  The bay is a protected marine life preserve and turtle and dolphins are seen here often.
The Four Seasons Manele Bay is located here and is the beach that hotel guests use.  It is the only beach on Lanai that is suitable for swimming.[spacer height=”-20px”]

Follow the trail from Hulopoe Bay Beach to the overlook for Puu Pehe or Sweetheart Rock.
You’ll pass several tide pools, a sea arch, and Shark’s Cove along the way.
Shark’s Cove and Shark’s Bay are located along the trail, if you prefer a more secluded spot have a picnic here in full view of Sweetheart Rock.  But don’t swim at either beach the currents are quite strong.

Take a sunset bike ride in Keahikawelo, also known as Garden of the Gods.  These natural rock formations are best seen in the early morning or early evening when the sun casts shadows on the formations bringing out their dynamic colors.

Admire the ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs by Shipwreck Beach.

Explore the shores of Shipwreck Beach.  Look out for brilliant shells and other treasures that
