Community & Culture
Because it’s somewhat off the beaten path, Lāna‘i remains Hawaii’s best-kept secret. It’s the sixth largest of the Hawaiian Islands with 141 square miles of land. It’s also the sixth most populated—home to only about 3,102 residents. There are no traffic lights, no shopping malls, and no public transportation.
And that’s no problem. Lāna‘i affords a more leisurely way of life. Take a leisurely stroll and take in the charm of Lanai City’s shops and restaurants or visit one of Hawaii’s finest beaches, where the scenery is spectacular and there’s nary a soul in sight. Or partake in one of the many events held regularly on the island. The more you learn about what’s going on in the Lāna‘i community, the more you like Lāna‘i.
Lāna‘i’s Cultural Heritage
Lāna‘i is a special place where one quickly becomes aware of the spiritual connection to the ‘āina—the land—and to the island’s rich cultural heritage and natural history.
The best place to learn about these things is the Lāna‘i Culture & Heritage Center located in the Old Dole Administration Building on Lāna‘i Avenue.
