This Underwater Destination In Hawaii Is Just Begging For A Visit

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, but not all beaches are created equal. And while we love Hanauma Bay, there is another Oahu destination we can’t get enough of. This unique underwater destination found along Oahu’s leeward coast is just begging for a visit, and we can’t wait to show you.

Before we dive in, we need to issue a short warning: please remember that you are a visitor in the vast Pacific Ocean; you should never disrupt the living coral, or bother sea life. Disturbing endangered animals like the Hawaiian monk seal and the honu is illegal and may result in massive fines. As always, we suggest you check out surf conditions before you make any decisions, and head warnings posted at these popular spots.

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:

Kahe Beach Park is located at 92-301 Farrington Hwy., Kapolei, HI 96707, and is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Have you ever been to this striking underwater destination? Share your experiences and opinions in the comments below.
