Full Description
Huawai Bay is a small, beautiful bay located below the The Challenge at Manele Golf Course. It is frequented by local fisherman but difficult to access via the Fisherman's Trail. Best option to reach this beach and bay is via a boat. The area can be good for snorkeling and scuba diving when the ocean is calm.

To get here, take Highway 440 south out of Lanai City. About 5 miles out of town the highway makes a left turn, continue straight on Kaupili Road and take the first left on New Manele Road. Follow this road down to the ocean. The road runs through the golf course. The paved trail to the bay is on the right just before the golf course begins.

Don't expect any sand here, it's a very rocky shoreline. There are also no facilities here of any kind. If you want a sandy beach with easy water access you'll be much better off at nearby Hulopo'e Bay Beach Park.

There really is no reason to come here. The views from above are pretty amazing for sure, but other than that this is not a swimming beach.

This beach is located right next to the Challenge at Manele Golf Course and that's the only reason I even found it. I hiked down which takes a little while and is a fairly narrow path in parts. The beach is full of rocks, not sand, so not really a place you'd hang out. It is pretty neat down there and I had it all to myself the entire time.

The ocean was pretty rough so there is no way I'd get in the water here so it's not really a swimming beach. Neat thing to see, but not a beach for most.
