First the view of the preserve is just breath taking from above and even more from below. Take a swim if not the snorkel tour from Ike. Just a beautiful setting.
I lived in Hawaii during the 70's so I was a little surprised by the change's. However, I do think the measure's the state has taken to preserve the enviornment are good ones. Be sure and take notice of when it is closed.
Is has always been one of our favorite places to go see when we're in Hawaii. It's one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen. They have a place you can rent snorkel equipment.
