Snorkling at Hulopoe Bay in Lanai Hawaii

Snorkling at Hulopoe Bay Lanai Hawaii

We had amazing days at this gorgeous beach full of snorkeling, paddle boarding, and soaking up the sun. My husband ran up to Lanai City and would grab up Fresh Poke for Lunch. Amazing after a busy morning in the water. Everything on Lanai is so clean. I have never seen a such a nice beach bathroom.





What: Fronting the Four Seasons Resort Lanai, named one of America's best beaches

Where: Follow Manele Road south to the coast

More Info: Restroom and picnic facilities available, NO lifeguards are present at this beach


The pristine beauty of Hulopoe Bay earned Hulopoe Beach the title of America's best beach in 1997 from Dr. Stephen Leatherman (Dr. Beach). Located on Lanai's southern coast, Hulopoe Bay greets you with a stunning expanse of pearl-white sand and crystal blue waters.


Most of the year, this protected bay fronting the luxurious Four Seasons Resort Lanai is the best spot on the island for snorkeling and swimming. Summer conditions are especially prime for swimming. Surf and current tend to pick up during the winter months, though, so swimmers should avoid rough conditions during that season. Open to the public, Hulopoe Beach Park also has a great beach park complete with picnic tables, barbecue grills, restrooms and showers.
