The Culture and History of Lana’i
For 70 years, most of Lana’i was a Dole pineapple plantation, producing more of the fruit than anywhere else in the world at the time. That’s why it’s nicknamed “Pineapple Island”, despite its much longer sugar production past. Guests are encouraged to visit Lana’i City and take part in resort cultural activities to learn more about the island’s history through local stories, music, art and cuisine. And, thankfully, the slogan, “Love Lana’i”, still rings true. Lana’i features very little development, eco-friendly innovations and an impressive commitment to advancing quality of life while protecting the environment.
