The original harbor breakwater located here was built in 1920’s but was severely damaged by hurricanes. A new breakwater was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and was dedicated on July 7, 2007 giving Kaumalapau Harbor a one of a kind look.
Kaumalapau Harbor is the main commercial seaport in Lanai.
Visitors are reminded that cccess to the harbor is limited on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays due to security matters and freight activity. There are also no facilities at the harbor.
It's a tiny bay with room for just one or two boats.
You can anchor by 7 m in the southern half of the bay.
