LANAI LUXURY VACATIONS
Lanai Luxury Travel Advisors
Lana`i, once known as the Pineapple Island, although pineapple is no longer grown there commercially, has a land area of 140 square miles. It is the sixth largest of the Hawaiian Islands and has 47 miles of generally rugged, rocky coastline with some isolated sandy beach areas.
Lana`i is part of the County of Maui and has a population of about 3,000. Its only town and settlement is Lana`i City. The island is 18 miles across at its widest point. It rises from sea level to the highest point at Lana`ihale, 3,370 feet, at the eastern end of the island. The island is marked by broad flat plains and plateaus that were formerly used by the pineapple plantation until its demise in the ’80s. The north and east sides of the island have dry deep gulches and ravines running far inland.
Lana`i is probably as old as its nearest neighbors, Maui and Moloka`i. That would put its age at one to two million years, based on studies of those islands’ underlying lava flows.
