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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
