The Jaw Dropping Bay That Is Unlike Anything Else In Hawaii

On the Kona coast of Hawaii Island, a dozen miles south of Kailua-Kona, sits a picturesque bay with crystalline turquoise waters and epic snorkeling. While Kealakekua Bay is no doubt absolutely jaw-dropping, it also happens to be one of the state’s most historic bays.

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/

While these 13 bays are also quite picturesque, they will never live up to Kealakekua’s beauty. If you are on Oahu, we think you’ll love Hanauma Bay, a world-class snorkeling destination that was recently named the best beach in America for 2016 by Dr. Beach.
