Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve - Review

Hanauma Bay is a glorious and rich bay not far from Waikiki that is sure to leave any traveler absolutely stunned. The semi-circular shoreline is home to the diverse flora and fauna of Hawaii. The amazing park has some extremely rare and wonderful corals as well as marine species. 

There is so much to do at Hanauma Bay but snorkeling is a definite must. To see the live corals in all their vibrant glory are an experience that needs to be had. The variety in the species of fish is simply astonishing. A million colors; red blue, yellow, green and purple, make the snorkeling experience very memorable. 

There are several activities that you can take up at the park from hiking and trekking to plunging into the water. The water is shallow and it is a great place to safely take the kids. Hanauma Bay Nature Park is one of the attractions in 2 Days Itinerary Honolulu. Must visit this awesome attraction.

Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, Honolulu Reviews

  • The first time going out to Hanauma Bay Nature Park surprised me. Taking a wheelchair down from the parking lot to the beach was sort of fun but going back up – not so much. I think I scarred the shuttle driver on one of the curves but a little detour around the shuttle and everything was fine. Snorkeling in the beautiful Hanauma Bay was beyond beautiful. Got real tired swimming, and then very stuffed eating BBQ.

  • A fantastic place to explore. Get there before 7am for free parking and entry. Wheelchair access is great with a trolley up and back ( $2.50) plus a beach wheelchair to borrow at the beach. We saw lots of fish and learnt so much about the Hawaiian waters.

  • It's an absulutely beautiful bay but it's also very crowded and we did not see a whole lot under water. I know there is no other way than to herd all these crowds coming day in and out and I believe they handle it pretty well but the amount of people there obviously takes away from the experience. I think next time I would try going late pm (we are not morning people). Bring own snorkel gear because the rental closes at 5:45. The bus (route 22) takes you right there. Riding the bus in O'ahu is really nice. $ 10 to take my 2 teenagers and me all around the island in a climate controlled, clean bus. I don't have to worry about parking and I can take pictures with both hands.

  • We were there to watch the sun rise. The Beach was clean and very easy to snorkel from. Sea life was beautiful as well as abundant. Great place for the family. Parking and admission to the beach was reasonable.

  • Gorgeous! Great snorkeling. Respect the land, watch a short safety presentation before entering the park.
