The Healing Of Hawaii’s Famous Hanauma Bay Is One Of The Few Bright Spots Of This Crisis

Snorkeling is perhaps the most popular — and quintessential — Hawaiian activity. With warm water and islands surrounded by magnificent reef ecosystems, Hawaii is a snorkeler’s paradise and there’s no attraction more famous than Oahu’s striking Hanauma Bay. The snorkeling destination is typically open six days a week but was closed on March 16, 2020, until further notice due to COVID-19, giving its marine residents some much-needed time to heal. 

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
