Snorkeling the reefs off Kailua and Lanikai Beach is a unique experience not to be missed. Lanikai Beach is exceptional for beginners due to the proximity of the living coral reef to the soft white sand beach lapped by shallow, calmer water. Kailua Bay is a protected Ocean Recreation Management Area and a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, or Honu, feeding grounds. Honu are endangered and protected animals that spend their days swimming around the shallow reefs and eating Limu, or seaweed, off the rocks. These creatures should not be touched and care should be given not to disturb their natural routine. While they are feeding and active, sea turtles must come up to breathe every couple of minutes and can often be spotted by the keen and quiet observer. Calmer days, with less wind, allow for better visibility and therefore a better chance at spotting turtles and tropical fish. Hawaii is home to hundreds of endemic fish species including the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, Hawaii’s State fish. Kailua also has healthier coral, in more of its natural state, than places like Hanauma Bay that see over 1 million visitors per year. Kailua and Lanikai Beaches are considered to be two of the most beautiful beaches in the world, graced with the softest white sand and vibrant turquoise water.
