Here under Lanai, you will find travel information about the island of Lanai, as well as general information.
Hawaii's most enticing island is one of the smallest and youngest islands and the only place from which five other islands can be seen. Lanai has only one town, Lanai City, which is located in the center of the island. The island's landscape is rather dry and dusty and the best way to explore the island is via 4WD vehicle since only a few roads are paved.
Since 1922, when Jim Dole purchased the island and turned it into a plantation (once the largest single pineapple plantation in the world), Lanai's economy was based on pineapple growing, why Lanai was also known as "the Pineapple Island". In 1930s the Castle & Cook Company took over and eventually turned to tourism in the 1990s. Today, most of the island belongs to a development firm, the Lanai Company, and Lanai has turned into a luxury resort destination. It hosts two world-class resorts and a pair of championship golf courses.
Lanai is an idyllic resort hideaway and the perfect place to rest and relax. The island offers a range of activities. You can go diving or snorkeling in Niihau's crystal clear waters, enjoy the scenic views of the Munro Trail or go golfing, biking, hiking, fishing, horseback riding or play tennis. Some of Lanai's main attractions include Hulopoe Beach, Shipwreck Beach and Manele Bay.
