We rent a jeep to explore Lana'i every year and this year most trails were closed. Luckily, the trail to Kaunolu is almost always good since it is on the south and more dry. We were all by ourselves once again, what a treat! Hike...More

At the south end of Lana'i and after a bumpy Jeep road, this place dates back to the late 1700s and King Kamehameha I. Great ruin site as well as petroglyphs and lookout points. Wear sturdy shoes and drink water as it can be hot...More

I made a stop on my last day. While I was out there I ran into two super friendly locals that shared so many stories of the area. It was a wonderful trip however trip advisor had the location wrong.

On February 10 while visiting Lanai, my husband and I asked a local where the best place was to watch the sunset. He suggested Kaunolu, a former village on the southwestern tip of Lanai. We had a AAA map of Hawaii and it clearly marked...More

Regarding the activities our one biggest highlight was exploring Kaunalu area for a day. This is accessible only by 4x4, and when we went the road was in very good shape. I recommend checking with the Jeep rental people on the current status, as this...More

July, 2006 Kaunolu and Halulu Heiau are really the same thing, since the latter is part of the former, across a ravine. This is a non-maintained attraction, and the sole car rental company on the island expressly forbids driving even their 4 wheel vehicles there,...More
