If you are looking for a sandy beach, Honolua Bay would not be what you are looking for. However, the bay is a popular spot for snorkeling. The beach itself is a narrow path of boulders and sand with the water being the focus. Reaching the bay is a short trek in itself as you would need to park your car on the highway and take a 5-minute walk through a vine filled valley.
This beautiful bay has been able to avoid any significant commercial development due to the community’s activism. So a natural sense of magic is still relevant in this area. Snorkeling is usually the main activity of choice in the area, however, surfers flock to the area during the winter season for its swells. The bay is also a great place to watch the sunset or spot for Humpback whales during the winter.
