Hulopoe Bay Beach Park
Hulopoe Bay Beach Park is on the south coast just opposite the Manele Bay boat landing and anchorage, below the Manele Bay Hotel. This is a wide, golden beach with great body boarding, surfing and good for swimming. But beware of strong undertows in heavy surf conditions. Hulopoe is a marine reserve and the snorkeling is also excellent, with lots of marinelife to be seen. This beach is listed in the annual “Top 10 Best Beaches” national survey conducted by the University of Maryland. Hulopo`e was rated the #1 beach in the US in that survey for 1997. Five other Hawai`i beaches made the top 10 listing.
