Nice off road adventure. Rent a jeep for a day and go visit this place, it looks like Mars with the red dirt and rocks, but with the advantage of a beautiful ocean view. Keep riding on that road and you'll be at a beautiful beach where you can have a picnic.

Never miss this if you are in Lanai! Never seen before amazing rock formations in acres of land. Very barren land and you forget this is Hawaii!!

Another fun little destination in your beat up rental Jeep. The different colors of the sand are truly amazing. Just follow your trusty map to get here and you will have some nice sight lines of the northwestern part of the island.

We rented a jeep and made the trip to Garden of the Gods on the way to Polohua Beach and it was worth the bumpy ride. The garden of the gods feels like you're on a whole new planet - interesting topography and rock formations as well as the red, red dirt. It was really neat to see, especially if... More

Even if you aren't into old Hawaiian history, this is worth a visit. I found it spiritual & peaceful. I would go again for sure. Even my kids liked it!

This can be a difficult and dusty place to go so wear clothing you never want to wear again including shoes. However it is a once in a lifetime "bucket list" type of place. You have to look for the "Gods" & that helps you focus on the present and connect.

With the heavy rains the day before, we couldn't do Munro Trail so off we went to Garden of the Gods. The ride was bumpy but we made it! The landscape view of this whole area is breathtaking.

You need a four wheel drive to get anywhere on the island and it can be rented in town. Once you get to explore it is a fantastic experience.

Wow, words cannot explain the beauty of this place! The range of colors is unbelievable! try to rent a 4 wheeler for the day if planning on going. Then you can get down to the beaches where you will be the ONLY people around! This was our best day in Hawaii! Ask the person at the ferry booth for the... More
