Beautiful conserved bay for snorkeling. Reefs were close to shore and beautiful fishes so close to shore. Consider wearing long pants to prevent being scratched by reefs at shallow areas. Highly recommended!

Took an around island tour and stopped into Hanauma Bay for a visit. There is a charge to walk down to the beach, hire a snorkel and swim with the fish which we did not do due to time constraints.
