Hulopo'e - Huawai Fisherman's Trail

1.1 Miles
Lanai City, Hawaii


The Hulopo'e - Huawai Fisherman's Trail in Lanai, Hawaii, is an easy 1.2 mile out-and-back hike along the shores of Sharks Bay. This GPS data brings you about half way through the entire trail, but you get plenty of views. Sections of this trail have been walked by fisherman for 1,000 years and further down the trail is an interpretive trail at the Kapiha'a Village. Unfortunately I did not hike to the village.

The trailhead starts at the western end of Hulopo'e Beach and passes the Four Seasons Resort and plenty of private property as well. Do not stray from the trail as you'll either enter private property or end up along cliff ledges that can randomly collapse into the ocean.

The trail also passes several rocky beaches consisting mostly of large rocks, so watch your step.

While in the area, be sure to check out Puu Pehe (Sweetheart Rock).

Reaching Lanai: To reach this trail, you'll need to take a boat from Lahaina on Maui, which costs about $30/person one-way. Hulopo'e Beach's lack of people makes the trip well worth it.
