From fantasy paradise to world-class facility for marine biology, the little island found in Kāneʻohe Bay has a rich, colorful history. Klieger weaves together the interesting story of Moku o Loʻe, or Coconut Island as it is better known, from the early days as part of the ahupuaʻa of Heʻeia, its passage to various owners including Christian Holmes and Edwin Pauley, and its development as a research institution for the University of Hawaiʻi.
