LANAI

Lanai was until recently known as “The Pineapple Island.” Castle & Cooke had the largest pineapple plantation in the world on Lanai, 15,000 cultivated acres, which accounted for 98 percent of the U.S. production of pineapple. Now only 100 acres remain in cultivation, and Castle & Cooke has opened tow luxury resorts on the island, hoping to attract wealthy visitors in search of seclusion. Lanai offers varied and fascinating geography that includes beaches that stretch from Polihua in the north to Naha on the eastern side. There are the beautiful rainbow arches of Manalel and Hulopo’e in the south, and majestic sea cliffs such as Kaholo Pali that are only accessible by boat. Lanai, especially around Manele/Hulopo’e Bay, has some of the best snorkeling and scuba in Hawaii. It also has three fine golf courses and both public and private hunting preserves.

Most people take the ferry to Lanai. You can spot whales from the boat during the winter. However, both Island Air and Hawaiian Airlines offer flights to the Lanai Airport.
