Honaunau Bay, Honaunau

4.7
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.
