The boat ride over we saw full breach of a whale. It was breathtaking. This beach is gorgeous. Such clear water and nice sand...the water was refreshing. I could sit and enjoy the ocean all day.

We went here a few times since it was right near the resort. It's beautiful there and very relaxing. Got lots of great views from the resort too.

Unlike most of the other Hawaiian islands, there aren’t many beaches around on Lanai. In fact, this is the only one you should use for swimming and sun bathing. If you’re staying in town and the cool winds give you second thoughts about swimming, don’t...More

Postcard perfect beach, no bikes allowed (trying to keep less objects, don't know??), good snorkeling when the ocean is calm, even if you don't want to go in the water you can just relax under the trees, enjoy picnic lunch, listen to the wind, surf,...More

Since I get over to Lanai several times a year, one thing I've enjoyed doing is biking down from town, and going for a swim. Over the past 25 years I have camped, biked, visited, and held family gatherings here but not this summer. I...More

We went over to Lanai by boat for some snorkeling and beach time and we were not disappointed. This beach is amazing. You have to go a bit offshore when snorkeling to get to crystal clear water but once there the fish are plentiful and...More

Wife and spent a good part of the day here just vegging. No snorkeling, no swimming, no nothing. Just sitting and reading. What a wonderfully picturesque place to just sit and do nothing. Highly Recommended.

There's a market in Lanai City (Richard's Market). (808) 565-3781. You can call them and ask if they have charcoal briquettes. The bigger issue is how you're going to get to Lanai City to buy them.
