Hanauma Bay

You can hike around the far ridge! 8 miles! Future destination!

On Sunday, my roommate CJ, his long time friend, and I went to Hanauma Bay. It's an official nature preserve and a popular tourist spot located on the East side of the island, just beyond Hawaii Kai. The bay is filled with underwater life, coral reefs, fish, turtles... to much disappointment no sharks, lobsters, star fish, crabs, octopus... just a variety of sea life. You have to watch a short 10 minute video about preserving the sea life before gaining entrance. It's a short walk down to the bay area. You can rent snorkel gear, or just lay out on the beach. The snorkeling is easy since the entire bay is relatively shallow. You just have to make sure you don't step on any of the coral so be sure you're comfortable snorkeling before going in too far.

We say a lot of various fish and a turtle. They're so chill, very relaxing to watch.... slow moving, calm and going with the flow.

It's a great place for a family trip and introduction to sea life and snorkeling. The official site is below.
