Honolua Bay, West Maui

Maui, one of best places to snorkel in the world is Honolua Bay. Located just north of Kapalua, West Maui, Honolua Bay features established coral reefs and clear waters out in the bay, you’ll need to swim out past the shoreline to get past the cloudy brackish water; a mixture of both fresh and salt water. No fishing of any kind is allowed making for an abundance of various marine life that is second to none on the Valley Isle.

Honolua Bay is part of a Marine Life Conservation District.

Honolua means “two harbors” in Hawaiian, and this bay was historically used by Honolua Ranch to receive supplies and ship products.
