United States - Lana'i

Lana'i is the sixth-largest of the Hawaiian Islands and the smallest publicly accessible inhabited island in the chain.It is also known as Pineapple Island because of its past as an island-wide pineapple plantation.

Tourism on Lana'i began to be prominent in more recent history as the pineapple and sugarcane industries were phased out in the islands.

Lanai may be the perfect place for a relaxing getaway, but it is also ripe for the exploration of its untouched natural beauty. Rent a jeep and drive up the beautiful Norfolk pine-lined Munro Trail and discover panoramic views of the island. Maybe you'll catch a glimpse of a spinner dolphin while swimming in Hulopoe Bay (one of the largest schools of spinner dolphins in Hawaii), a protected marine preserve. The secluded island of Lanai is the place to visit if you're searching for serenity, adventure and intimacy.

The island is owned by Larry Ellison, who has stated that he wants to make Lana'i into 'the first economically viable, 100 percent green community.'

Travel Information  Travel Information

Many people fly into Maui, then take a ferry boat over to Lanai.

When on the island, the major town is Lana'i City, where there are no traffic lights, no shopping malls, and public transportation is supplied by a hotel contractor.

For a one-time fee, hotel guests enjoy unlimited rides on small and large buses that go between the hotels and the ferry landing on Manele Bay. Bicycles and off-road vehicles are for rent. Most attractions outside of the hotels and town can be visited only via dirt roads that require an off-road vehicle.

More Information

History: Lanai was formed about 1.5 million years ago by the volcano Palawai. The island is currently 140 square miles in size.

The first people to migrate here, most likely from Maui and Molokaʻi, probably established fishing villages along the coast initially but later branched out into the interior where they raised taro in the fertile volcanic soil.

Southeast Lanaiís Kaunolu Point is said to be the birthplace of the modern sport of cliff diving, begun by Hawaiian warriors leaping into the ocean from an 80-foot ledge as proof of their courage. Each August, the Cliff Diving World Championships are held at this same spot.

English-Speaking?: YES

"Dominica was another stop on our Caribbean cruise. Here's an excerpt from my blog post about our day in Dominica:

The bus departed from the pier at 10:30am and we were en route to our first stop up in the mountains for a hike to a waterfall. As we drove through town, it looked really poor - more than the other places we've visited. During our history lesson of Dominica we learned that the island is 99% volcanic rock and 1% limestone, that there are 17 dormant volcanoes and 365 rivers - one river for every day of the year, and during leap years they find another river, was the joke.

The bus stopped after the 45-minute drive through the mountains, and we were at the entry point of the rain forest for the walk to Spanny's Waterfall. A few people stopped to use the facilities but the rest of the group began their walk through the rain forest - great tour guide, just leaving us to navigate on our own. The walk was roughly 20-minutes and was a pretty substantial hike through the mud. We saw a lot of interesting and colourful plants along the way, but surprisingly no bugs. The waterfall was absolutely beautiful. Could have spent a lot more time there.

Back on the bus, we made our way down the mountain and to Mero Beach, which is a black sand beach. The drive down the mountain was a little easier to handle than the drive up. Baron sure did like to grind the gears, and take the turns pretty fast. The beach was pretty interesting, seeing that I've never been to a black sand beach before. The water looked really murky, but was surprisingly clear - the black sand makes the water clarity deceiving. Because we were with the tour group, we didn't have to pay for the chairs/umbrella, and we were given a free drink at the bar.
