Hanauma Bay

Once a neglected bay and a symbol of environmental degradation, Hanauma Bay in Honolulu is now a world conservation centre with its core purpose being to protect marine life. Restoration works on this volcanic bay began in 1990 with the introduction of restrictions to the number of visitors, and establishment of an education program on the Island among other conservation measures. However, the restrictions did not deter marine lovers and conservationists from all over the world. Each year, millions pack their bags and head for Hawaii to experience the ocean, marine life, sandy beaches and the sun in Hanauma Bay.

  • Baskin the sun all day and experience the oceanside tranquillity that attracted Hawaiian nobles such as King Kamehameha to Hanauma Bay.
  • Escape the dry land and dive into the deep waters of Honolulu and experience snorkelling among the friendly sea creatures and view at close quarters the marine life that is unique to this bay; snorkelling equipment is available for hire.
  • Empower yourself intellectually by learning of marine conservation methods, and the array of species on the island at the Hanauma Bay Marine Education centre in Honolulu.

Due to conservation measures by the Honolulu government, access to Hanauma Bay is quite limited. While in Waikiki, visitors can drive to and from the bay. However, the parking lot has limited space and once full, no other car or visitor is allowed into the bay. This makes shuttle buses more convenient. Alternatively, visitors can take the regular buses to the crater and walk for 10 minutes to Hanauma Bay. It is advisable that visitors arrive early as the parking lot closes by mid-morning. Moreover, visitors can come back early afternoon when the morning crowd has returned to town.
