#2 of 6 in Things to do in Honaunau
Immerse yourself in the beauty of Hawaiian nature, both underwater and on land, at Honaunau Bay. The tropical beach is famous for its easy water access provided by the eroded volcanic rock known as the Two Steps. The bay's clear water and abundant coral wildlife make it one of the state's prime destinations for snorkeling and scuba diving. Encounters with friendly dolphins and sea turtles are very common in the bay. Keep in mind that the beach has limited parking; arrive early to find a good spot. Plan a trip to Honaunau easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • One of the best dive sites in the world. Wide coral and fish flora of all kinds. Access through rocks is not overly complicated. Mandatory to go if you go to Big Island!

  • Visiting Kona we went to make snorquel to Honaunau bay, excellent place where nature of all kinds comes to the eyes, between volcanic stones and sand sectors you see shoals of colorful fish, some turtles and if there is luck some dolphin. I highly recommend this place

  • One of the best beaches on the big island here. Big waves rolling in perfect for boogie boarding. Lots of nearby facilities and lifeguards keep a watchful eye on things to insure your safety. White sand and cool breezes, wish I was there now! 😍
  • Beautiful bay, but so many kids and families, over crowded and hard to get in. The water is not clear at all so the snorkeling is not ideal
