About Lānai CityA “company town,” Lāna‘i City lies almost at the center of the island at the foot of Mount Lāna‘ihale. This comfortably cool setting is flanked by towering Norfolk pine trees.
All island roads radiate from Lāna‘i City. Area hotels provide regular shuttle service around the island, but many of the best sites can be reached only by four-wheel-drive vehicles. For information about rental cars phone (808) 565-7227; maps, up-to-date information about trail conditions and suggested itineraries also are available. Do not attempt to leave paved roads on Lāna‘i in any vehicle other than one equipped with four-wheel drive. Because all sites are remote, make sure you have sufficient food and beverage with you.
Scenic Kuamalapau Harbor, about 7.5 miles west of town via SR 440, is Lāna‘i's main commercial seaport. The fishing is terrific here, and so are the views. Access to the harbor is limited, however, and there are no nearby facilities.
