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 up to the old palace ruins and see the Sharkfin from the overlook. A picnic table provides a good place for drinks and snacks. Explore Lana'i!!

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 and a bit of a strenuous hike. The temple building must have been really impressive when active. Picnic table at end of road provides for a good snack/picnic location. She the Shark Fin from the overlook at the top as well as 3300 ft. sea-cliffs.

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.

Visit the archeological site of an ancient hawaiian village and a gorgeous photographic opportunity. Not really swimmable, however you'll see locals fishing and scuba diving. The road to this site is very rough it some areas and requires a four-wheel drive vehicle.

Here you will also see ruins of King Kamehameha's home here. This site became a National Historic Landmark in 1962 as marked by a plaque on this site.

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 on there; the maps were received on the island did not really show the "road". We ventured out there in the evening - taking highway 440 and turning just west of the airport where there was a King Kamehameha sign and arrow for Kaunolu Village. The first five miles of the dirt road were pretty smooth considering. The last five headed down to the ocean were Extremely rough, my husband who loved 4WDing around the island had met his match on this road. We finally made it to the area where a picnic table was in time to watch the sunset. This area is very remote, and it would probably be rare to see another person. Nice spot but if you venture out, expect to go VERY slow and take your time in getting there. Also note: several Axis deer ran across our path or we encountered them on the first 5 miles of the trail, near the grassy area - be on the look out as to not hit one.

(For those less adventureous, and another nice place we found to watch the sunset was at the Kaumalapau harbor spot, and it is paved roads all the way there.)
