Camping on Lanai
The best things in life are indeed free—or cost a big pile of money. No better example is camping on the island of Lanai, where the beach-front lawn of Hulopoe Beach Park is a short walk from the uber-luxury grounds of the Four Seasons Manele Bay Resort. Lanai is a short ferry ride (about ten miles) from either Lahaina or Ma’alaea on Maui.
The beach park, featuring some of the best coastal camping in Hawaii, is about a quarter-mile walk from the ferry landing. Directions in the Maui Trailblazer guidebook.
