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

Weather: 70 to 85 degrees F. Lanai City is cooler than the beaches due to its elevation. The weather is relatively dry for a Hawaiian island, receiving only about 37 inches of rainfall per year.

Currency: US dollar. Credit cards are widely accepted. Travelerís checks are accepted at many businesses.

Famous People: Danny Lockin, actor, dancer, born in Lanai in 1943. Best known for his role as Barnaby Tucker in the 1969 movie Hello Dolly!, he played the same role in the Broadway play and when it went on tour across The United States.

Jay B. wrote about Guimaras:

"I've been to most of the resorts and islands of Guimaras but 2 that I would like to mention are: 1. Magic Island - a private resort where one could relax and enjoy the entire island as your own since bookings are only limited. Advance booking is necessary if you want to go there.They can arrange a flat boat for u to travel from main island barangay to magic island passing by mangrove forest. The entire stay is worry free since they can cook all your meals and even serve 2 snacks a day. all included on their price rate as well as island hopping tour 2. SEAFDEC, Igang Marine Station - a marine reserve that is usually one of the destination during guimaras island hopping. It houses 2 giant grouper which is now 16 yrs old as of this post. Fish Pens or cages where placed in the middle of the sea that houses not only groupers but also mother milkfishes that grows a meter big as well as 'labahita' a fish that has a blade like tail.. and others that i forgot the names.. the marine reserve has a garden full of giant clams (oh, it's not only in land we can find a garden but here also.. a garden of giant clams!)I've been there twice one with an island hop and just last DEcember 2014, I was just so lucky I was able to get a permit to stay in their pink cottages that was original built for the scientist and researchers. Somehow they can allow tourist to stay but permit through invitation is required. Great adventure with marine life especially during low tide where I got a chance to stroll the sea beds and check on the different species of live sea shells, star fishes, sea cucumbers etc..
