20 Best Beaches In The US You *Need* To Vacation On
Manele Bay, Hawaii
First-time travelers to Hawaii tend to gravitate towards the Big Island, Maui, or Kauai, but Manele Bay makes the case for a trip to the much-smaller island of Lana’i, right off the coast of Maui. Manele Bay includes one of the state’s foremost beaches for snorkeling and diving, Hulopo’e, along with grassy lawns, barbeque grills, and a designated marine preserve. Yes, that means you might see dolphins while sunbathing on the shoreline or swimming in the warm sapphire water. While January through March is the island’s rainy season, Lana’i’s desert environment makes it warm year-round.
