One of my favorite spots on Oahu was Hanauma Bay. We made a brief stop to take photos from above….

And the right side.
The “curved bay” was declared a protected marine life conservation area and underwater park in 1967.
It’s against the law to touch or walk on the coral.
Great weekend, everyone….especially to the folks down in Texas. The footage of Hurricane Harvey’s destruction is truly heart-breaking.
A beautiful spot.
Pretty awful what’s happening in Texas.
Truly. Wasn’t sure how much coverage you were seeing in Europe, but I noticed BBC News made the hurricane their lead story more than once. I have cousins in Houston, but they are OK, thankfully.
I see lots of people on the beach so can I assume snorkeling is allowed ? What a peaceful place.
Yes, it’s supposed to be a stellar place for snorkeling.
Such fabulous pictures, wonderful place!
Thank you, Ann! Hawaii is pretty amazing.
Looking forward to snorkeling at Hanauma Bay over Christmas. Any tips other than arriving early?
Definitely arrive early–it was pretty crowded when we got there in the afternoon. And be careful where you step.
