Hanauma Bay was declared a protected marine life conservation area and underwater park in 1967. The rich marine life and the coral reefs make it a great attraction for divers and snorkelers.
There is a large sandy beach perfect for sunbathing, relaxing and picnics. Several hiking trails extend along the coastline, overlooking the bay.
Because this is a protected area, there are some rules that you must respect and before going down to the beach, all visitors are required to watch an educational film about the bay, the marine life and the preserve.
