In the south of the island of Oahu, a dozen kilometers from Waikiki in the flooded crater of the volcano is the best beach for snorkeling Hanauma Bay (Hanauma Bay). This is a real paradise, which was recognized as the best beach in America in 2004, and one of the best places in the world for divers and water sports enthusiasts.
Hanauma Bay Beach is the most beautiful and famous beach on the Hawaiian island of Oahu.
The beach is located in a quiet closed bay, which is the crater of an extinct volcano, and is great for beach holidays and swimming.
But first of all, this beach is famous for its clear waters and rich underwater world. Here are the largest coral reefs in Hawaii.
Hanauma Bay is the most famous diving spot in Oahu.
In the underwater kingdom of the bay, you can swim with more than 450 species of tropical fish that live here. Some of them are endemic to the Hawaii region.
In addition, amazing coral reefs abound here. The most visited tourist seasons are summer and winter.
In fact, Hanauma Bay is a nature reserve that aims to protect and protect against excessive influence on the fragile and beautiful ecosystem of the bay.
Absolutely every guest of Hanauma Bay should watch a short educational film before walking along the magnificent beaches.
It is important to know that Hanauma Bay is closed to visitors every Tuesday, as a measure to protect the environment.
Hanauma Bay is a real tropical paradise consisting of a white beach with lush greenery, which is complemented by the richness of the sea kingdom and coral reefs.
In the 18th century, Hanauma Bay was a favorite fishing spot of the Hawaiian kings, and today it is protected as a nature reserve because unique tropical fish are found here.
The reserve is under strict control. Once, about 3 million tourists visited Hanauma Bay in a year, but today their number has sharply decreased.
The bay is visited by about 1 million people annually, and about 3,000 people rest here every day.
Back in 1967, an organization was founded that protects rare marine life.
