Lanai Things to Do

  • Shark's Bay

    On the south side of the island, just south of Hulopoe Beach, lies Shark's Bay. The bay is surrounded on both sides by sheer cliffs. There is a nice beach there, but I have no idea how to get to it. We saw a guy walking, than he disappeared behind some rocks, and next thing we knew, he was on the beach. I have no idea how he did it. I was looking...

  • Sweetheart Rock

    This 80 ft. high offshore rock is known as Sweetheart Rock, or Pu'u Pehe in the local Hawaiian langauge. This sheer rock island is located right on the edge of Shark's Bay, right near Hulopoe Beach, on Lanai's south shore, and is one of the island's most recognizable landmarks. Ferries traveling from Maui, are greeted by the site of this famous...

  • Shipwreck Beach

    Another interesting beach is Shipwreck Beach or Kaiolohia. This isnt a good place to swim or snorkel because the water is too rough but its a nice place to explore. There is also a ship that was intentionally grounded here in the 1940's. It is the World War II Liberty. Its makes for a curious sight here. It can be alittle difficult getting to this...

  • Hulopo'e Beach

    This beach is beautiful too. It is also accessible by walking from Manele Bay which is where the ferry drops you off and picks you up from. This is a great place to hang out at the beach and do nothing or go snorkeling, swimming or body surfing. My son was trying to body surf here and at this time of year which is in July the waves were big enough...

  • Polihua Beach

    If you stay on the same road that brought you to Garden of the Gods you continue for another 6 miles and you will hit Polihua Beach. As you pass the Garden of the Gods the road to this beach is super bumpy. You definitley need a jeep or some type of 4x4. At first it feels as though you will never get there then you reach a bunch of trees and you...

  • Garden of the Gods - Keahikawelo

    I wasnt sure what to expect coming here. The guide book i was reading said its called the Garden of the Gods but could easily be called the tantrum of the Gods. It wasnt too far a drive from Lana'i City so I thought Why not.We can go through the Garden of the Gods and head to the beach in that area. Getting here wasnt difficult even though the road...

  • Manele Beach

    Situated on the east coast of the island, Manele Beach is a popular local hangout because... really... there isn't anywhere else to go unless you are going to Maui via ferry. Spend a day here and have a cook out with friends and family. It makes for a nice end to a long day trekking the island.

  • come back totally spent

    I understand the later in the day you return to Maui, the choppier the seas. Keep that in mind. we took the 4:30 back and it was under control, but pretty rough.After a day in the sun (and we hear, and believe that it's hotter in Lanai than in Maui) each of us napped against each other on the outside deck of the ferry.Never felt a chill

  • Snorkel More

    down the path to the beach, look towards the left side of the cove. You will see stairs. this is NOT where we entered, but the finest snorkeling is in that area. It's a bit of a trek from the path over there, so we put our stuff just a little further than the camping area and it was an easy swim.If there are a lot of surfers there, the snorkeling...

  • The shuttle from Maui to Lanai

    When the ferry drops you off, try to find the complimentry shuttle to Manale Bay. There are 5 dollar shuttles to the hotel and back, and 10 dollar shuttles which will take you into town (we took that and our driver forget to drop us off...not alot happeing there, didn't even realize it was the town, and we TOLD him we needed to be told where to get...
