Main City is Lanai City

Lanai Hawaii is accessible by air or ferry. Both Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air provide daily services between the little island and the gateway cities of the Western USA, with a complete cargo service. Alternatively a ferry runs between the island and Maui at least five times a day.

The main city is Lanai City and is located in the middle, just north of the Lanai Airport, off Highway four hundred and forty Lanai supports a population of only about three thousand people.

The main city has been tenderly restored as has its landmarks such as the inviting Lanai Playhouse and Theatre. Others may be more interested in the visiting artists program which is held at The Lodge at Koele continuously through the year and is composed of lectures and shows by top artists, chefs, musicians and show acts.

Lanai City is a simple modest little Hawaiian city with a population of only about 2,500 people, where buildings seldom extend above one story in height. Historically this was the first real planned settlement and was developed in the early 1920s by Jim Dole to accommodate all the plantation labourers and their ever growing families. Even today Lanai City still contains scenes out this era. Brightly painted houses, children playing by the sides of the roads, people contently lazing in the island sunshine watching a friendly game of soccer and shops that often only hold the necessities.

The city currently sits at 1600 feet, making it cooler than the coastal areas. The mists at this altitude combined with the Norfolk pines that envelop the city create the perfect forest paradise.

It is quite interesting that compared to all the other islands, Lanai is the only one where the majority of development has occurred inland, all the others have established coastal cities. Visitors to the island will find all the major shopping and eating out places are grouped round one area, Dole Park. Dole Park is the four blocks of downtown Lanai City in essence it forms what would be seen as the town green or square. It is not uncommon to find locals sitting outside one of the cafes in the sun watching the passer bys, or children and adults alike playing games in the streets.

The City offers shoppers a relaxed, warm and inviting atmosphere around the quaint area of Dole Park. Visitors can shop and then casually sit down and sample some of the delectable local cuisine that is served by a number of cafes.
