Top Five snorkeling spots in the Islands: HAWAII Magazine Facebook poll results


No. 4 (tie)

This mile-long expanse of white-sand beach on Maui’s west side — a few miles north of the old whaling town of Lahaina — is dotted with hotels and condominiums. Among Ka'anapali's best spots for snorkeling:  around 40-foot-high Black Rock (Puu Kekaa). Its underwater lava rock ledge is known as a honu hangout area.


Situated on the northwest shore of Maui, Honolua Bay is part of the Mokuleia Marine Life Conservation District. The bay boasts a large variety of fish and coral formations. Snorkeling is best during calmer summer months. During winter's high-surf season, pro surfers take on powerful waves there for a payoff of very long rides.
