As the spinner dolphin swims, the island of Lanai is perched but eight miles off the western shoulder of Maui. From Honolulu it is a 20-minute puddle jump. In terms of atmosphere, though, Lanai is light years removed from the rest of Hawaii’s bustle.
Long, rolling fields of pineapple, softly blowing tradewinds, tall rows of pine and eucalyptus trees, dramatic cliffs that drop off to a deep blue sea, rust red dirt and lush greenery-these are the elements that define Lanai. Oh, and there’s one other thing: silence. A beautiful, enduring silence. Stepping off the plane here is a step into another world. Slip off your wristwatch and put it in your satchel for the duration of your stay. You won’t be needing it on Lanai.
