Hulopoʻe & Manele Bays
Lanaʻi's finest beach (and one of the best in Hawaii) is the golden crescent of sand at Hulopoʻe Bay. Enjoy snorkeling in a marine preserve, walking to a fabled archaeological site or just relaxing in the shade of palms. Nearby, Manele Harbor provides a protected anchorage for sailboats and other small craft, just a 10-minute walk from Hulopoʻe Beach.
The world's tallest sea pali (cliffs) rise from the Pacific along an awe-inspiring 14-mile stretch of the Molokaʻi coast from the Kalaupapa Peninsula east almost to Halawa Beach. The average drop of these sheer cliffs is 2000ft, with some reaching 3300ft. And these intimidating walls are not monolithic; vast valleys roaring with waterfalls cleave the dark rock faces.
The Road to Hana
You’re about to experience the most ravishingly beautiful drive in Hawaii. The serpentine Hana Hwy delivers one jaw-dropping view after the other as it winds between jungly valleys and towering cliffs. Along the way, 54 one-lane bridges mark nearly as many waterfalls, some tranquil and inviting, others so sheer they kiss you with spray as you drive past.
