The Manele Bay Hotel is located on a bluff overlooking beautiful Hulopo'e Bay and its beach and tidepools, which are protected as part of the Hulopo'o-Manele Marine Life Conservation Area.
Unique coral formations buffer the gorgeous white sand beach for very safe swimming, snorkeling, and diving conditions (but remember there are no lifeguards around). Lava rock formations create multiple tide pools along the south shore of the bay, full of colorful and sometimes bizarre-looking sealife.
Enjoy exploring these mini valleys but do so carefully (with good shoes for slippery rocks, at low tide, and always facing the waves) and make sure not to take anything home from the nature preserve.
Occasionally you can catch spinner dolphins playing in this bay, or see Humpback whales on their way down from Alaska in the winter.
There are restrooms, showers, picnic tables, grills, and a phone and camping is allowed with a permit.
Drive south from Lanai city on Hwy. 440 about 13 miles and follow the signs to Hulopo'e Beach Park.
