Top 15 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Lanai, Hawaii - Updated 2021

airbnb Lanai HI

Lanai is one of the smallest and quietest islands in Hawaii, which is why it is a popular option for those who prefer to enjoy a quiet, laidback vacation. Nonetheless, it still features a number of attractions. Topping the list is Hulopoe Bay, considered to be one of the best beaches in the US. Another beach worth visiting in the area is Shipwreck Beach which, as the name suggests, features a shipwreck, as well as ancient petroglyphs. Garden of the Gods, meanwhile, features strange rock formations that have an otherworldly appearance. Munro Trail, on the other hand, provides guests with great views of the islands of Hawaii. What are you waiting for? Book one of these top Airbnbs in Lanai, Hawaii to take the first step on your Lanai adventure!
