Like a lot of places, this beach is full of tourists- but it wasn’t as crowded as one would think being because the beach is so big and there’s a lot of ground to cover (swimming wise)! It’s stunning and makes for great photos. My favourite part of Hanauma Bay was the variety of fish, as well as we were fortunate enough to see a monk seal swim past everyone and come sleep on the beach! Once in a life time experience.
There is a 9 minute video before they let you yo down, but it’s not only for your safety but also for the reefs.

Went here for the snorkeling and I was personally a bit disappointed. There were strong currents and it was crowded. Unlike other places I've visited for snorkeling this was more of a mixed use beach with people hanging out or simply playing in the water. I did see some fish but not as many as expected. My wife who is a stronger swimmer and got out closer to the buoys had a better experience.

It is a beautiful area but not my families favorite snorkeling spot, we enjoyed sharks cove on the north shore and many sites in Grand Cayman much more. The water was a bit murky, the waves made it difficult to position yourself over the top of the coral, yes there were lots of fish to see, we even saw an octopus, just not as impressive coral formations and water clarity as at other sites we have snorkeled at.

We arrived about 10am and left st 2:30p and the tide was high and strong. Lifeguard got on speaker several times to remind us to be leery of the strong currents and waves. We had three children under 8 and they were getting tossed around at the shore. Not sure if it was just the weather this day.

Beautiful place! Must see. If you arrive before 7 am you get in free. Beautiful coral and fish. Plan to return.
