This 8-mile-long windswept strand on Lanai’s northeastern shore—named for the rusty ship Liberty stuck on the coral reef—is a sailor’s nightmare and a beachcomber’s dream. The strong currents yield all sorts of sea debris, from Japanese hand-blown-glass fish floats and rare pelagic paper nautilus shells to lots of junk. This is also a great place to spot whales from December to April, when Pacific humpbacks cruise in from Alaska. The road to the beach is paved most of the way, but you really need a four-wheel-drive to get down here. At the end of the road, you’ll find a trail that goes about 200 yards inland to the Kukui Point petroglyphs; follow the signs. Respect this historic site by not adding anything to it or taking anything away.
