Directions: Head northeast on HI-30 E/Honoapiilani Hwy. About 3.6 miles past Honolua Bay, you will see the huge dirt parking lot to the left.

Parking: Park anywhere in the lot and head to the beach.

Difficulty: This spot is suited for moderate to advanced snorkelers. There is no sand with a very rocky bottom.

Where to snorkel: Entry easy but lots of rocks. You can snorkel any where you want in the bay. This is usually calm, but can get choppy with strong currents further out. Best to stay closer to shore in bad weather.

What to look for: We saw a few fish further out, but choppy water had us staying closer to shore.
