Description

Poopoo Islet is located on the south-central coast of Lanai. Poopoo is a teardrop shaped islet just offshore and west of Huawai Bay. It is narrow on the north end broadening on the south, made up of basaltic substrate of boulders and soil, approximately 20 m elev., 40 m x 40 m , with a marine-bench with tide-pools on the south. About seven pair of wedge-tailed shearwaters (‘Ua‘u) observed pairing off in burrows on upper western slope. This islet is accessible by boat, but is not open to the public.
