Saw schools of colorful fish while snorkeling near the rocks on the left side (as you look from the shore). Plenty of parking, picnic tables, shade, showers, and toilets. A stone's throw from the ferry dock.

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

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!

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.

There's a market in Lanai City (Richard's Market). (808) 565-3781. You can call them and ask if they have charcoal briquettes. The bigger issue is how you're going to get to Lanai City to buy them.

Super easy! Get off the ferry, look to your left and you will see a little sign that points to the right and says "Beach". Follow that sign and when the road forks, keep to the left. That will take you to Hulopoe Beach... More
