|About these ratings|
Hulopoe Bay is one of Lanai's most popular spots. Sunbathers like the wide stretch of sand, while snorkelers revel in the vibrant reefs filled with fish and native plant life. Recent travelers recommend that you uncover the sea stars and hermit crabs in the bay's eastern side tide pools, and that you picnic in the shady areas behind the beach. There are also public barbecue grills, restrooms and showers for your convenience.
Sometimes, visitors are lucky enough to interact with the ocean dwellers. One IgoUgo.com user recounts: "The morning we spent on the beach, spinner dolphins arrived and played with the snorkelers. Everyone seemed to have a good time swimming as fast as they could, attempting to keep up with the dolphins."
Hulopoe Bay sits on the south side of Lanai. For more information, check out the Hawaiian Tourism Authority's website.
