Manele Harbor, located on Lanai’s south shore, has the only public boat harbor on the island. Visitors who take the ferry from Lahaina on neighboring Maui arrive here (five times daily), as well as a few fishing and snorkeling tour boats. Manele Harbor’s activity is limited to traffic from excursions and charters, while the other harbor on the island, Kaumalapau, handles commercial shipping.
There is a small pebble beach at the east corner of Manele Bay, which is a popular diving and snorkeling spot. But the swimming and sunbathing, there are better beaches on Lanai, such as neighboring Hulopoe Bay.
