My fiancé and I came here for our first time the other day! The location is absolutely beautiful, and the cove is breathtaking! We brought our own snorkle gear and had a blast! Lots of awesome fish. The downsides were definitely the crowds (to be expected) but the huge downside for me was the facilities! The bathrooms were DISGUSTING... And I mean, absolutely filthy! I couldn't even use them!! That gross! If I have to pay an entrance fee to get into a "nature preserve" I would ATLEAST expect decently clean facilities. Disappointing.

Gorgeous views and amazing snorkeling. The mongoose darting in and out of the bushes are also entertaining. Wonderful way to spend a day at the beach.

One of the prettiest places on the tour snorkelling with the fish and turtles was magical well worth the drive up

We booked to be picked up and snorkel and fins provided. Beautiful day, fish were not mega plentiful but more than enough. Not too crowded. Will be going again!

Hanauma Bay was mellow and tranquil with it's beautiful crystal waters. The turtles were leaving the shore when we got there and the water was amazing to swim in. Definitely recommended as it is outside of Waikiki Beach
