Secluded beach

Secluded area. Rent a 4WD Jeep from Dollar and explore. Bring your shoes/water shoes was you will need to traverse rocks to get a closer look.

Want to take along walk on a beach, just sit in the sun or take pictures? This is the place to be. If you adventure inland some you can find original petroglyphs that are stunning. A very Spiritual place to sit and contemplate.

Its a long way to drive for a photo op of a rusted out ship. The beach itself is junky, and I don't mean from things washing on shore like is mentioned. It's trashy from litter. If we ever go to Lanai again, this won't be on our to-do list.

Shipwreck is not for everyone. If you crave open space, peaceful surroundings and amazing views - Shipwreck is the place for you. However, if you are not into the great outdoors, and the sun and wind (sometimes rain) that comes with it, stay topside! There are turtles galore in the near shore waters, and during their season here, whales can... More

So shipwreck beach is just that. There's a ship wrecked not far from shore. Kinda eerie to see. The beach is nice and the water was extremely calm and clear while we were there. I mean really, really calm with the water barely making any waves or impact on the shore. We could see a turtle off shore bobbing around.... More

The drive to the beach was very bumpy because it was unpaved and at times dusty. There was supposed to be some petroglyphs that unfortunately we missed along the way.

If you like being on a beach with nobody around ..serenity to the max..this place is for you. With a very nice view of the shipwreck..hence the name..you will enjoy this long stretch of beach..perfect to relax..for a picnic or a swim.

The beach itself isn't much to speak of, though it was cool to see the ship further out. Makes you wonder about what happened and how it ended up there.

From the other side of Lanai - shipwreck beach is small but worth a trip!! You'll do better with a 4 wheel drive and park before you reach the soft sand.
