Snorkeling is activity that is loved by all adventure lovers. Maluaka Beach is famous for snorkeling and swimming, Turtle Island is most iconic snorkeling spot here you can swim with turtles in their natural home. Snorkeling here is open whole year so you can visit anytime you like. There is nice sand so you can get in water easily, we snorkel in south side because it is one of the best snorkeling point.

We see beautiful fish and sea turtles if you snorkel in north end there is less chance that you will find sea turtles. Snorkeling here is totally worth it you can make some good memories of this adventure with family or friends.

Short Trip to Beautiful Church

Near north parking there is beautiful Keawala’i Church, it takes only few minutes to visit this gorgeous church with extraordinary architecture. I recommend you to respect Church signs and do not enter cemetery in your beachwear because it is offensive. 

Keawala’i Church is almost 180 years old. This church offers two Sunday services where everyone is invited.
