Lonalulu is a town in Dragon Quest XI. Located in the south of Erdrea, it is a small, laid-back beach community.

Description

Lonalulu is a fishing village on the south coast of Erdrea. Almost all of its population are fishermen or related to fishermen, and the community is ruled over by a kahuna. The town connects to a quiet graveyard, Saikiki Beach, through the local church. Overlooking the village is a cliff where a woman fires a cannon to mark the morning and evening.

The villagers are described as laid-back, but are deeply superstitious. One of their most deeply-held beliefs is the suspicion of mermaids, after the tale of a fisherman who left his wife for a mermaid. They also believe in a god named Kanaloa, who will receive offerings in return for fish.

Additionally, a villager mentions worshipping a god named Kanaloa , which is a real Hawaiian god of the underworld.
