Matt Anderson's Take
Often confused with Hulopo'e Bay Beach Park on Lana'i, Manele Bay Beach is a super tiny pocket of sand and rocky shoreline a short walk east of the Manele Small Boat Harbor.

So, if you took the ferry from Maui to Lana'i you could take the very short walk to this beach if you wanted to see it but, I assure you, this is not the beach you are looking for on Lana'i! See Hulopo'e Bay Beach Park instead for that.


Manele Bay Beach isn't anything special (special is relative in Hawaii!) and while you could play in some of the shallow areas of water here I don't know why you'd want to.

I've heard of some people who snorkel and scuba diver around here but if the waters are choppy and considering all of the boats that might be coming in and out of the harbor I don't see why you'd want to do that here.

Plenty of nice views here and it's fun to watch the boats come and go for a bit, but it's not really a destination beach at all.

Not really a beach you'd swim at. It's by a boat harbor but also full of reefs. It's an easy hike to get here from the harbor where you park and fun to hang out and watch the boats but otherwise not overly great.
