Lanai is actually called Hawaii’s Pineapple Island, but it is also known as Pineapple Island by insiders. It is the smallest and therefore also a very unknown island. But this one has been made accessible for tourism for quite some time.

Visit the island of Lanai in Hawaii

Basically, the island is a paradise for all those among the vacationers who want to enjoy the seclusion and tranquility and this is possible on Lanai at various destinations. Of course, there are significantly more tourists on the island of Oahu with Honolulu and there is certainly more going on. But if you want to relax once then you are exactly right there.

In our opinion, this is an insider tip for tourists. By the way, the island is also very small and has only a length of 18 miles and a width of 13 miles. Thus, you can easily explore it in one day by car. Furthermore, the population is also only about 3,000 and not very many people live there. But it is also a volcanic island like the others.
