Foursquare Tips

  • Volcanic cone just SE of Honolulu, tourists started to overtake the land in 1931 and has since suffered from much overuse. Now Hanauma Bay is known for its educational tours and natural wildlife.
  • Snorkeling here is an Oahu must. I rented gear on-site and was very pleased with the price and service.
  • Don't step on the reef or the coral! It destroys the marine habitat. Do you want a giant stepping on your home?
  • get here after 3:15pm for free entry
  • Excellent for the entire family! Get there before 10am if you want to get in. Short video on protecting the reef. You can rent snorkels and fins on site. Closed on Tuesdays.
  • spend the day, sunning, swimming and snorkeling. but, not on a Tuesday (closed)
  • Free entrance for Hawaii Residence & Military. Also for international students with Hawaii ID & Hawaii bank card :)
  • It closed on Tuesday !!
  • Be sure to sign the sheet so you don't have to watch the video a second time within one year
  • Definitely bring your own lunch and go snorkeling
  • Paraso! Simplesmente MARAVILHOSO! - vc paga 7,5U$ para entrar, estacionamento 1U$ - vc assiste um filme que conta como a ilha se formou e sobre a preservao!
  • Get there early before 630am to get free parking and free entry.
  • crowds, videos to enter water, blown out. Go to shark's cove further north. smaller but better
  • Free for military personnel. Worth the visit for great snorkeling.
  • Lot fills up early, but there's a quiet residential street a few blocks before the turn that make walking a possibility.
  • This was so much fun! If you have a vehicle then bring food and a cooler! There's no food/drinks down there so bring some. If you don't have snorkeling gear, rent some or get water shoes. Have fun!
  • The parking lot usually opens back up around 1 or 2. So go early, or go after lunch.
  • World famous Hanauma Bay is absolutely, completely, definitely free with your ELS ID. Bring your picnic and eat on the beach!
  • The best place to snorkel in O'hau!, you have to pay U$S 7 to enter but it is totally worth it.
  • $1 parking lot fee and if your military it's free. Bring your own lunch snorkel gear and towel n ur set for the day! Be sure to come early parking fills up fast
