Best Big Island Snorkeling Beaches:

Mauna Kea Beach, Kaunaoa Bay - On the Travel Channel's "World's All Time Best Beaches" list

The City of Refuge, Puuhonua O Honaunau - My favorite Big Island snorkeling beach

Kahaluu Beach Park - The perfect beginner snorkeling beach. Convenient, calm, loads of marine life.


To experience Big Island snorkeling is to witness the birth of an island.  Being the youngest in the Hawaiian chain, the Big Island boasts extensive lava flats, deep underwater crevices, dynamic weather, and raw coastline.  There's a primal awe to snorkeling shores just beginning to produce new reefs.

The Big Island is nearly twice the size as all the other islands combined yet has less than 15% of the states total population.  The Big Island's 266 miles of coastline is for those looking to snorkel Hawaii away from the crowds.

The Big Island is home to Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano.  Kilauea is the longest continuously erupting volcano in recorded history, producing a non-stop lava flow since 1983.

Snorkel Wisely
I know… I know… but it has to be said. The Hawaii snorkeling information contained within these pages is meant only as a general guide as to what to expect when visiting the Hawaiian Islands. As beautiful and mild as Hawaii usually is, weather is always unpredictable. Know your swimming ability. Be prudent and take into consideration the weather and environmental conditions when planning your beach activities. Obey warning signs, they are there to protect you. “Those waves don’t look that bad” are famous last words. I want you to enjoy all that our beautiful islands have to offer. Just use common sense, ok.
