  • Honolua-Mokulē‘ia Bay Marine Life Conservation District

    This place is really beautiful. The walk down the dirt path is serene and scenic enough to make it worth the trip. Be advised: Honolua Bay gets crowded very early. If you don't want to be bumping into scuba divers and boats full of snorkelers that start getting dropped off around 8 AM, go early! There's lots to see. I swam around with a few turtles (one without a front flipper) and saw large schools of fish. You could spend a lot of time exploring both the north and south reefs. Make sure you take proper footwear with you because the rocks are slick. It really is beautiful, though. If you want to see video of what I saw and a further review of my experience, check out my longer blog post about it: http://blog.sunplay.com/blog/snorkeling-at-honolua-bay-maui/

    Fun surf spot! You have descend down a semi steep hike to get to the water, then you have to jump off a rock a few feet off the water to get in. Its loaded with locals and you have to wait for a wave without cutting anyone off. You must be careful if you are not advanced, the reef is very shallow and its easy to get cut up on the rocks if youre not careful.

    Way up at the northern tip of West Maui, just past the Kapalua Resort, this beautiful marine preserve is a killer spot for summer snorkeling when the waters are calm. In winter, it's transformed into a monster surf spot with extremely high waves for pros only.

    Great spot for snorkeling as it's pretty secluded. It is a bit of a challenge to get down to the water though, as you can get pretty cut up on the rocks. Once you're in, you'll see a ton of fish and sea turtles.

    During the winter, this is one of the locals' favorite surf spots. Definitely not for the novice surfer though!

    When Honolua Bay is calm, it's some of the best snorkeling in the world! When there's waves, do not try to swim in the bay, but check out the local surfers shredding on one of the best surf breaks in the world!

    North of Kapalua is a scenic world, great to explore and get away from the resorts and the shops. Just past Kapalua is Honolua Bay, whose north edge is Lipoa Point, a scenic lookout where you can watch the surfers below. It's also the perfect location to enjoy sunsets and look for the famous Green Flash. Further on, between mile markers 38 and 39 (closer to 39), is a blowhole which can either delight you or surprise you and get you wet!

    Gorgeous bay, and the snorkeling is amazing! The only downside is it is a bitch to get into the water without breaking your neck. There is no real sand "beach" at Honolua, just lots of rocks. You need to creep into the water very carefully. But it is so worth it! We saw a giant sea turtle here and plenty of gorgeous fish, eels, urchins, etc..

    This photo was taken on the access trail from Honoapiilani Highway on Maui to Honolua Bay below. I went to Honolua Bay to snorkel, but walking the short distance of this trail was the most beautiful part of my adventure.
