Garden of the Gods - Lanai, Hawaii

Garden of the Gods is a unique but beautiful rock formation that has been created by thousands of years of erosion. The result is colorful pinnacles and buttes in a remote canyon area on the tropical Hawaiian island of Lanai.

Deep colors of red, purple, and ochra earth, along with crusted lava create offers island visitors an incredible lunar landscape.

You want to view the Garden of the Gods either in either the early morning or late evening. The reason for this is because the sun’s rays strike the various minerals in the rock, bringing out dynamic range of colors and offering up a feast for the eyes.

What makes this Hawaiian location even more unique is the surrounding dry environment and gusty coastal winds off the Pacific Ocean.

The ancient Hawaiian legend of how Garden of the Gods actually got its name is that the massive rocks and boulders were dropped from the sky by the gods tending their gardens.

Only 4-wheel drive vehicles are allowed on the the dirt road leading to the Garden of the Gods. Be sure to check with your rental car company before making the trip.
