 Minor light of Lana'i - Manele Bay, HI    
Lighthouse accessible by car and a short, easy walk.
Description: In 1965 a breakwater was constructed in Manele Bay to form a small harbor. At the outer end of the breakwater, a beacon mounted atop a pole anchored in a ten-foot-high white house served as an entrance light. Today, a cement base supports a pole light that serves pleasure craft and the ferry that runs between Lana'i and Maui.

Just west of Manele Bay is Hulopo'e Bay, a Marine Life Conservation District, that offers superb snorkeling, and a short distance up the hill is the Four Seasons Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay.

Location: Located at the end of the breakwater in the harbor at Manele Bay on the southern shore of Lana'i.
Latitude: 20.7417
Longitude: -156.8866

Notes from a friend:

We just made a day trip over to Lana'i from Maui so we did not stay in either of the Four Season Resorts. However, on our trip back to Manele Bay to catch the ferry, our shuttle driver, with whom we had a lengthy conversation during the drive from Lana'i City, insisted that we go inside the Manele Bay resort just to see the lobby. It was definitely worth the stop, even if we felt a bit out of place after running around the island all day and picking up some of that famous Lana'i red clay coloring on our white socks and shirts.
