Atop Kuliouou

This islet is located eastern side of Oahu Island. To most people it looks like a rabbit and they literally raised rabbits on this islet until 1994. Manana island is a 63 acre, about 2300 feet long and 4200 feet wide, rises to about 360 feet at its highest point. It is visible and beautiful when you hike up Koolau's eastern summits.
Today the island is protected bird sanctuary and a breeding area for sooty terns, brown noddies, wedge-tailed shearwaters, bulwers petrels, and red tailed tropic birds.
