Niihau, the Forbidden Island in Hawaii

The island of Niihau is a private island with a strict visitation policy. Accessible via Niihau Helicopters you can now escape for half a day to this island as a guest of the owners and spend some time on this beautiful and pristine island.

Niihau was purchased from King Kamehameha in 1864 with the promise to preserve the Native Hawaiian language and Niihau’s unique way of life. To this day, the island is owned by the Robinsons, the descendants of the Sinclair family.

One of only three places in the world where technology has not yet moved in, Niihau is located 18 miles from the island of Kauai across the often-times rough Kaulakahi Channel.
