Longing for the cat you left at home? Don't miss Lanai`s open-air sanctuary, a happy haven for spayed and neutered cats. Imagine a large playground in paradise, where cats romp and play in Hawaii's sunshine, and snooze under shady trees. Purring cats of all shapes and sizes eagerly await your visit. Our caregivers, who joyfully care for the cats, would love to meet you too. If you're interested in adopting a cat, we love matchmaking!

There is not many things to do on Lanai so this was a nice break from the beach and pool. Highly recommended especially if you are traveling with kids. You will need a car to get there since it is in the middle of nowhere.

Something that's different while visiting Hawaii (mostly Maui). It's very relaxing and rewarding. From Maui, take the ferry and shuttle to the Cat Sanctuary. It's a volunteer program to relax with 540 cats while petting and feeding them. Just 3 hours and it feels like...More
