Rabbit Island - Oahu, Hawaii
Manana Island is an uninhabited islet located 0.75 mi off Kaupo Beach, near Makapuu at the eastern end of the Island of Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. In the Hawaiian language, manana means "buoyant". The islet is commonly referred to as Rabbit Island, because its shape as seen from the nearby Oahu shore looks something like a rabbit's head and because it was once inhabited by introduced rabbits. The rabbit colony was established by John Adams Cummins in the 1880s when he ran the nearby Waimanalo plantation. The rabbits were eradicated about a hundred years later because they were destroying the native ecosystem, an important seabird breeding area.
Manana is a tuff cone with two vents or craters. The highest point on the islet rises to 361 ft. The island is 2,319 ft long and 2,147 ft wide and has an area of about 63 acres. Manana's only sand beach is a small storm beach on the west to south-west (leeward) side of the islet. This sand deposit, located above the reach of the normal waves, is about 30 ft wide and curves around to the western side of the island.
