There is something of the surreal when you walk through this Garden, almost as if you walked on to Mars and left Earth behind. I prefer to get out and walk through AFTER visiting Polihua beach (which is another distance down the road), coming at...More

We took a tour of Lanai and this was included on the trip. It is nothing like the Garden of Gods in Colorado or Illinois, but it's beautiful. It's also really windy! It's worth the time. If you're not on a tour you'll need to...More

You have to get a jeep to go there. It's really bumpy but lots of fun and very beautiful. We took the road all the way down to the beach. The beach at the bottom is very windy. Probably why nobody was there. We got...More

It’s only five miles off of the main road, but the rough road will take you a while to navigate. But the sights are worth it. The sparse desert landscape are beautifully stark. Have a good camera and some good wAlking shoes.

Get that 4X4 folks for this journey. Very rough but oh so rewarding once you make it here. When we went the winds was very strong so be careful when approaching the edge. Keep driving after this and you'll enjoy the next stop
