Hulopoe Bay

This protected bay fronting the Four Seasons Resort Lanai is the best spot on the island for snorkeling and swimming (with the exception of winter, when the water is rough). 

If you don’t go into the water, you’ll still enjoy the large tide pools on the east side of the bay, protected by volcanic rock, for exploring and viewing sea creatures.

Due to the pristine white sand and crystal-blue waters, Hulopoe Beach was named America's best beach in 1997 by Dr. Stephen Leatherman (Dr. Beach).
