  • Diving, snorkeling and swimming in a volcanic crater a vibrant fishing life in every imaginable color.  more »
  • unfortunately we didn't get the opportunity to swim in the bay. The whole bay is closed off from the highway for weekly maintenance on Tuesdays. We will try and get back next time  more »
  • One of the best beaches on the big island here. Big waves rolling in perfect for boogie boarding. Lots of nearby facilities and lifeguards keep a watchful eye on things to insure your safety. White sand and cool breezes, wish I was there now! šŸ˜
  • Beautiful bay, but so many kids and families, over crowded and hard to get in. The water is not clear at all so the snorkeling is not ideal
