I took the ferry ($60 round trip) from Lahaina to Lanai as a day trip. In whale season (nov. 15 to March 31) this is also a whale watch opportunity so have your cameras ready! The beach is just a short walk from where the ferry drops you off-road to the left, then left- it is not crowded and has... More

Took the ferry from Lahaina ($60 round trip, about a 45 minute ride, totally worth it) to Lanai and walked maybe 5 minutes over to Hulopoe beach. Couldn't believe my eyes at how beautiful it was! It was not crowded at all, almost felt like a private beach. There is the four seasons resort, and not much else around. There... More

We arrived on the 6:45am ferry from Lahaina and there wasn't one person on the beach when we got there. We walked across the beach to the Four Seasons and spoiled ourselves with a gourmet breakfast with a view (each order of Kona coffee gets you an entire pot), then went back for lunch at their wonderful terrace restaurant, "Malibu...

Ferry ride and pack a lunch. Bay protects the beach from heavy waves. Lots of picnic tables and bathrooms.

There are only two sand beaches of consequence on Lanai. The rest are a collection of flats, cobble, and broken coral. One is Gold Sand Beach on the west end beyond Garden of the Gods. The other is Hulopoe Beach which is the subject of this review. Just to put something to rest before going any further while Gold Sand... More

A perfect place to swim, snorkel, dolphin watch, meet the locals and just relax. Waves can be pretty high at times but once you get out past them, the water is clear and welcoming. Watch fish as you swim!

I can't express enough how much our group of 9, ages 15-60 years enjoyed this beach! If you're arriving via Ferry this beach and lookout are literally within a half miles drive. That being said rent a jeep (we rented 2 for our group of 9 from Mikie at Adventure Lanai) and explore the rest of the island and it's... More

It's a scenic spot with beautiful blue water , red cliffs and natural pools. Very few people were here when we visited which enhanced the visit even further.

My wife and I stopped here for a picnic and stayed because it was so beautiful and there were so few people on the beach. This beach has a bathroom and showers, shaded picnic tables and grills, plus plenty of beautiful, sandy beach. Additionally, there is a great lava flow formed beach to explore. My wife LOVED this beach and... More
