Hulopo’e Beach is a stunning beach on the Island of Lanai. The beautiful crescent-shaped beach is bordered on both ends by boulders. The crystal clear waters invite swimmers and snorkelers to observe the brilliant marine life below, a testament to the success of the marine life conservation district here. Hulopo’e Bay’s beauty is untouched as it is a protected marine preserve. Visitors are asked to take only pictures and leave only footprints in order to maintain the raw and natural environment.
Hulopo’e Beach is located on Lanai’s south shore. You cannot access the beach from the water since no ships are allowed to anchor in the bay. To get there from the land, first fly into Maui (many major airlines provide service to the island). Once in Maui, travel by car to Lahaina, a beach town on Maui’s western coast. From there you can take the hour-long ferry over to Lanai. The ferry provides a gorgeous view of Lanai’s rugged coast on the way over. Once you land on Lanai, you can walk to Hulopo’e Beach directly from the dock. Canadians can easily get a flight to Maui from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina and most other popular cities.
