With the temporary closure of Manele Bay Resort, very few visitors were on the island. We showed up at 4:30 pm and saw 2 cars in the parking lot. We walked on the soft sand, surprised that there were only 6 people on the beach including ourselves. The steps to the tidal pool area looked a bit rickety, probably because... More

The beach is conveniently located adjacent to the marina in which the ferry/boats dock. My friend & I spent the remainder of our day trip lounging on the beach. We met a few locals and one specifically told us about some tide pools east of the beach. You walk up a dirt road past the parked cars. You'll hit a... More

We tried to cram so much into our one day on Lanai that I know we short changed this little jewel. If we ever go back to Lanai it will be for the express purpose of spending the day enjoying this beautiful spot.

This beach has both great sand and good snorkeling. Just a short drive or even walk from the Lanai ferry. There is also a tidal pool area and a nice hike up the cliff

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

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
