Activities on Lanai

Experience at Koele Golf: Legendary golfer Greg Norman and architect Ted Robinson together designed the 7,017-yard par 72 course in the cool uplands of Koele. The mountain course begins on a plateau nearly 2,000 feet above sea level, set off by panoramic views of Maui and Molokai directly across the ocean channel. The dramatic signature hole number 8 presents a spectacular 200-foot drop in elevation from tee to green through wooded ravines.

Lana'i Pine Archery Range: Equipment rentals and lessons for all ages.

Lana'i Sporting Clays: This rustic 14-station sporting clay course allows shooters to tackle a variety of target angles. Meandering through a pine-wooded valley that overlooks Moloka'i, this skeet range with trap and a compact station is fun for shot-gunners of all skill levels.

Horseback Riding: Explore the hillside surrounding Koele and learn of Lanai's ranching history. Wooded upland trails lead to hidden valleys that are home to deer and other wildlife, offering spectacular views of Maui, Molokai, Lanai City and the Lodge.

Kaioloi'a: On the northeast shore of the island, Kaioloi'a is a beachcomber's and fisherman's paradise.

Koloiki Ridge Hike: Koloiki Ridge Hike is about a 5-mile trail that starts from the Lodge at Koele and takes you through the forested hills and valleys of the Koele uplands. Enjoy the solitude and rugged beauty of Lanai by taking this nature hike.

Lopa: A summer south swell surfing area, with a picnic site and beach area along the eastern shore of Lana'i. This area is the location of one of four ancient fishponds, only one of which is located above sea level. A great beach for sunbathing.

Naha Trail: Paved by Hawaiians more than a century ago, this trail leads to an old village site.

Hulopo'e Bay - Tide Pools: Located in south Lana'i is Hulopo'e Bay, which is a favorite fishing and swimming beach. These tide pools are a wonderful place to discover fascinating inhabitants of these "natural aquariums." Hulopo'e Bay is part of a marine life conservation district and a preferred habitat to Hawaiian spinner dolphins. The best time to explore is when the tide is low and going out. Hulopo'e Bay is an excellent beach for water activities, including swimming, boogie-boarding and snorkeling.

Manele Bay: Manele is a small boat harbor frequented by island yachtsmen and a snorkel/tour catamaran from Lahaina, Maui. Manele Bay is an adjacent bay to Hulopo'e Bay.

Polihua Beach: Located on the northern coast and only accessible by four-wheel drive. Famous for the turtles that nest here. Poli (core or bay) and hua (eggs).

Munro Trail: This ridge takes you over Lana'ihale. Four-wheel drive or hiking only: on wet days, portions of the trail are impassable and extreme caution should be used.
