The best free entertainment in Hawaii
We were quite frankly spoiled by Kahalu'u Beach. The beach was
5 minuet walk from our resort and had both great snorkeling and Sea
Our first day there we noticed the turtles. They eat the algae
grows on the rocks and they eat while people walk by, oblivous to their
Turtles will occasionly pull themselves onto the rocks and sun
And of course there are the fish! We did most of the
Kahalu'u Beach where the fish are quite tame, but the ground and corals
been damaged. We also visited the beach at the place of refuge
while the fish aren't as tame, the site is in much better condition.
You see many of the fish you would expect to see in tropical fish
The place of refuge had one more bonus - turles swimming with deeper
where I could hang out without fear of getting washed onto the
Turtles aren't particularly nimble and they get washed around by the
waves washing over the shore. They shells protect them from the
scapes, but I have no such advantage.
While snorkeling at Hapuna Beach, I got a drop of water on my
Nikon won't service it because it's been salt water damaged so the
is effecivly a write off. Time to see how the insurance works.
