I took the first ferry out of Maui and was one of the few people that arrived at Hulopoe Beach in Lanai. It is a hop, skip and a jump from the harbor, a leisurely 10 or 15 minute walk. I was delighted to see how well kept, beautiful and serene the beach and its surroundings were. There are several... More

This beach is a treasure. This is the best snorkelling I had on Hawaii, I saw- and heard- different kinds of fish feeding, surfing etc and turtles. The access is mellow and the layout of the ocean floor here is comfortable and visibility is excellent. We saw dolphins around the corner of sweetheart rock ont he beach trail the next... More

While staying in Lahaina, Maui I made a day-trip to the Island of Lanai. Just the round-trip ferry ride there was worth the voyage. Beautiful 45 minute ride from Maui to Lanai. Disembark in a perfectly groomed harbor and take a 20 minute stroll to Hulopoe Beach. Stunning. I arrived very early, having taken the first ferry out to Lanai.... More

People were using the barf bags, it was frightening.Despite the return ferry ride, this was... More

Very secluded beach/island. Barely any people. Great for get-a-way and to relax. Good snorkeling spot.

This is a beautiful beach in a beautiful bay in the shadow of the beautiful Four Seasons Resort. Is it worth visiting Lanai when there are soooo many beautiful beaches on Maui? Maybe not! If you are on a multi week vacation, then spend a day exploring Lanai. The resorts are magnificent. Lanai City is quaint and the far off... More

We've caught the early morning ferry from Lahaina to Manele Lanai at 6:45 am with the hope to see the pod of dolphins playing at Hulopoe beach. Well, they wereen't there but we had a great time discovering the fishing bowl just off the Hulopoe beach. Coming so early in the morning, we had the entire beach for us for... More

We caught the ferry from Lahaina to Lanai to enjoy my birthday at the beach. It was about a 10 minute walk from the ferry to Hulopoe Beach. What a beautiful spot. It looks like a beach on a deserted island, surrounded by huge palm trees. We were so happy to find lots of shade there, since we didn't bring... More

Only accessible swimming beach on the island. We camped just off the beach in the designated campground. Reasonable cost compared to $500+ to stay in hotels. Campsites were level with grills and the clean bathrooms. These amenities come at the cost of no seclusion and noisy beach partiers. The night we stayed a group of people were blasting music until...
