Lanai Real Estate

Lanai is a small and remote island in Hawaii. Since the island is small, it only has one city. Most of the shops and accommodations are found in Lanai City. The island has an airport called Lanai Airport. To reach Lanai, you can take flights from airports in Honolulu, Maui and other Hawaiian islands. Although Lanai is small, it has several beaches and bays. Some of the beaches and bays in Lanai include Huawai Bay, Hulopo’e Beach, Polihua Beach, and Sharks Bay. 

Huawai Bay is situated near to the Manele golf course. The local fishermen more frequently visit it than the tourists.  The water at Huawai Bay is crystal blue and calm. If you want to carry out snorkeling activities, this will be a perfect beach. Because no tourists visit it, the area is lack of facilities, lifeguard and etc.

Hulopo’e Beach is one of the most visited beaches in Lanai. You can find many recreational activities such as showers, BBQ grills, restroom, and etc. The Marine Life Conservation Area protects the beach. The water at Hulopo’e Beach is habitat to many colorful fishes and corals. You can dive under the water to view the fishes and corals. Visitors can camp at the place if they obtain the permit. There is fee that you need to pay in order to obtain the camping permit. Nearby the beach, you can find the Manele Bay Hotel. Some areas are covered with grasses. There are plenty of trees at the beach so it is suitable for carrying out picnic activities. On the left side of the Hulopo’e Beach, there is a hiking trail. You can hike on the trail to explore the Lanai Island.

Polihua Beach has the longest coastline compare to other beaches in Lanai. The name of the Polihua beach is derived from the Hawaiian language, which means egg nest. A long time ago, green sea turtles used to come up the shore of Polihua Beach to lay eggs. The beach is about 1.5 miles in length. It has high surfing current and winds. At times, the wind is so violent that it starts to blow sand throughout the area. When the strong wind is not blowing, you can carry out activities such as picnic, swimming, and etc. The bottom of the ocean is steep and dangerous. The reefs are not protected so swimmers have to be careful. Advanced surfer will find it challenging to surf at the beach. Although tourists are allowed to swim at Polihua Beach, it is not a recommended activity because the weather can suddenly turn bad.

Sharks Bay is a great place for viewing the scenery of the east and west coast. From the red lava rock, you can catch a good glimpse of the Pu’u Pehe Rock. The bay experiences a strong current regularly so it is not suitable for swimming. Shark Bay is secluded and not visited by many tourists. There are numerous rocks in the area. In addition, there is no lifeguard to watch over the swimmers.
