Relaxing on Lanai, Hawaii's Hide Away...

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
While islands like Hawaii, Oahu, and Maui attract a lot of visitors from the mainland and beyond, the little island of Lanai often goes unnoticed, unless you are flying in for some of the legendary golf on the man-made courses at resorts like the the Four Seasons.The attractions on Lanai are limited, but well worth the stop for beauty and level of peace that you find on this remote little island. While some other islands can be done on some measure of a budget (though this works best if you know someone) Lanai is rather more expensive.
