HAWAIIAN TROPICAL BEAUTY: AN IMMERSIVE RETREAT FOR THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL OF PRIVATE JET TRAVELERS
Below we share a few highlights about each island and one of the most popular places to stay on each island to relax, refresh and recharge.
Known for its history as a pineapple plantation, Lanai’s landscape is unique with rocky coasts and barren inland scrub. You can enjoy a private walk here on Lanai’s six-mile picturesque coastline, known as Shipwreck Beach.
Along your walk, you can take photographs of the beach’s famous shipwrecks or spend hours beachcombing with your family. If you’re lucky, you might even find a few Niihau shells. These tiny shells are named for the island in which they typically wash up, but you can also find these colorful treasures on Kauai, Molokai and Lanai. Niihau is a term used by Hawaiians that refers to three different shells that are commonly used to make the highly prized shell leis.
If the romance of a fiery orange Hawaiian sunset is on your list, one of the best places to watch the sunset on Lanai is at Keahiakawelo, known locally as the Garden of the Gods. Take some time before sunset to explore the unique terrain on the inland area of the island with its red earth, rocks and boulders.
For snorkeling in shallow offshore reefs, visit Hulopoe Beach. To get to the beach, take a ferry boat or catamaran from Lahaina. Here snorkelers enjoy the abundance of ocean life, including large schools of colorful tropical fish, dozens of playful dolphins and sea turtles. The beach also has a tide pool and rocks worth exploring.
