Aloha from Honolulu: Hanauma Bay

We love snorkelling and it did not take long for us to find a fantastic snorkel spot on Oahu: Hanauma Bay.  It’s a state park, so it is protected.  It is a sheltered cove made from a blown out volcanic caldera (many eons ago) and used to be a favorite fishing spot of Queen Kaahumanu. Now, it is a favorite snorkel spot for the same reason: the abundance of fish!
