Part 5 – Where is Lāna‘i City and what is there to do?
Lāna‘i City is located in the middle of the island at an up-country elevation of 1,500’+. It is the home for the majority of the island’s 3,200 residents and is very compact and walkable. Some people have “seen it all” in an hour while others can “spend the day” ….. depends on each individuals’ taste & preferences.
Time spent on Lunch usually averages 30-45 minutes.
Pele’s is closed for lunch Sat & Sun and Cafe 565 is closed on Sunday. Blue Ginger only accepts cash – no cc. No Ka Oi is off of the square at Houston & 9th and is open for lunch most weekdays. Coffee Works is located at Ilima & 6th and is open 7am-4pm.

The Local Gentry – Great selection “local” clothing, etc.
Hula Hut – Souvenirs and gifts.

Great APP & Guide – Info on Lāna‘i:
Weather can be “variable”. It also can be cooler upcountry on Lāna‘i than expected so everything from sunscreen to layers, an umbrella or light weight jacket are always a good idea.
