It's worth visiting this beach just to see the open view of the ocean on the way down the mountain. a lot of washed up debris on the beach. Not for swimming, but worth seeing,

Great views. A bit of a walk from the parking spot but you are rewarded with awesome pics and a serene isolated beach. Make sure you get your Jeep from John at Lanai jeep rental.net!

We visited the island for the first time, renting a jeep to explore it. We were curious what the Maui-facing side of the island was like so we drove over there. It is a very long drive on a long, twisting road. The last 30-45...More

Ok, if you have a jeep that the rental company doesn't mind getting scratched up a little, this is a great trip. If not, you can go most of the way with no vehicle scratches, but then have to walk a bit (maybe a mile)....More

It was a challenge to get to the beach but we were glad that we made the journey. It definitely is not accessible without a jeep. It was nice and no one else was on the beach.

it could take an hour to drive there, as the "road" is loose sand. deep sand and sandhills. it would be a difficult hike and possibly dangerous. you might hear gunfire, as Lana'i residents love to hunt wild goats and Axis... More
