Hanauma Bay - Oahu, Hawaii

Hello everyone, and welcome to Hanauma Bay in Hawaii.
Hanauma Bay is a marine embayment formed within a volcanic cone 
and is  located along the southeast coast of the Island of Oahu in the
Hawaiian Islands.

Hanauma Bay  is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Island.
While vacationing on the Island of Oahu in May 2012, the girls and I 
 took a day trip to visit the Nature Preserve and Marine Life Conservation District. 
To See the rest of the our wonderful  vacation GO HERE

Hana means bay in the Hawaiian language. 
Visitors are required by law to refrain from mistreating marine animals or from touching, 
walking, or otherwise having contact with coral heads which appear much like large rocks on the ocean floor.   About 400 species of fish are known to inhabit the bay. 
Hanauma Bay is known for its abundance of Green sea Turtles and is a nursery ground for the immature turtles.

Can you name Hawaii's state fish?
Remember High School Musical 2 song!!!
Yes! Thats it...
Beautiful view from the top of the hill, and a  long steep walk down~

The Marine Education Center has an entrance to the bay, where new visitors must watch a short film
and receive instruction about the conservaton of the Bay's resources. 
After the long walk down, and playing in the sun and sand all day there still  is a long steep walk up the hill~
Huffing and Puffing all the way. LOL

The view is worth the walk. And the water is so clear you can see the coral formations on the ocean floor.

The snorkeling is amazing for the young and old at heart.  
A wonderful grass area, white sandy beach, clean changing rooms and restroom facilities. 

The girls are having a great time in their floaties...

Snorkeling and enjoying the colorful fish they see.

Another wonderful day in the sun

Lots of heads  "bobbing up and down"

I'm so happy you joined me on my adventure to a beautiful beach in Hawaii.
I will be joining some parties and I hope you visit them too.
