The pure white sandy beaches reach from east to north of the island, and coral reefs surround it. Long time ago, Minna Island was a sanctuary known as Mennano-utaki. It was a desert island until group of sugar growers from Sesoko pioneered there in 1890. Later 13 families migrated from Sesoko to Minna, and the village was registered about 1902.
