Lanai's Shipwreck Beach Offers Private Escape

Worth Avenue in downtown Palm Beach is a destination unto itself, with restaurants and shops and plenty of resting areas with flowers and dappled sunlight.

After seeing this post from Hawaii specialist Robin Kanno (a/k/a @HawaiiVirtuoso on Twitter), we were inspired to look into Lanai's Shipwreck Beach, otherwise known as Kaiolohia.

This isn't a great spot for swimming, we found out, but the isolated eight-mile stretch of beach sounds wonderful for getting away and genuinely disconnecting from life's stresses. Your clients will need a four-wheel drive to get there (tell them to pack a picnic basket), but once they're at the beach they can sunbathe and relax and look out over the waters to see the shipwrecks that give the area its name (see photo, right--that tanker has been there for 60 years!), as well as the islands of Molokai and Maui. Those interested in hiking can go see the Kukui Point petroglyphs, marked by reddish-brown boulders.
