Great beach, good snorkeling. Had a very nice time here. I was able to see a lot of fish and some good amounts of coral. I even saw a small white tip reef shark chilling on the bottom out by the end of the point.

We went here upon recommendations saying this was a great snorkel spot. It was average at best. If you do snorkel, you have to go out fairly far due to visibility issues. Also, there are no showers (we read otherwise) other than the rinsing outdoor showers. In addition, if you come for a day visit as we did and plan... More

This is a great area to enjoy a day away from Maui. We took the ferry ride over to explore the island for $60 return. They have a washroom facility, picnic tables and plenty of areas to get shade from the unforgiving sun. Normally this is a great area for snorkelling but yesterday it was very windy and a huge...

Just returned , worth the 60.00 ferry ride! You don't need to rent a car beach is within walking distance from ferry. Just pack a lunch.

This beach is the primary reason we come to Lanai. It is drop-dead beautiful and the coral on the entire left side of the bay is incredible. Swim deep for even greater coral. We have been to all the islands and this beach (and snorkeling from shore) is one of the best. Four Seasons Manele is located right above this... More

A great beach to bring your kids. No lifeguard on duty so be aware of wave and current conditions. When in doubt, don't go out.

This is a public beach and an easy walk (two minutes tops) from the Four Seasons Resort. The resort has towels and chairs available to its guests at the beach. It was never crowded and a perfect place to watch the sun set!

Great Visibility for snorkeling. All kinds of colorful fish. Best is left side of beach. Tide pools are fun to look at too. Ferry from Lahaina was worth the trip. Walking distance from ferry harbor. Small store at harbor for snacks. No food to purchase at beach

Saw schools of colorful fish while snorkeling near the rocks on the left side (as you look from the shore). Plenty of parking, picnic tables, shade, showers, and toilets. A stone's throw from the ferry dock.

I took the ferry ($60 round trip) from Lahaina to Lanai as a day trip. In whale season (nov. 15 to March 31) this is also a whale watch opportunity so have your cameras ready! The beach is just a short walk from where the ferry drops you off-road to the left, then left- it is not crowded and has... More
