Olowalu Shoreline

Long, narrow beach with shallow offshore reef. This is a good destination for snorkeling.

This is a go-to for snorkeling, possibly beginner surfing and boogie boarding – but be careful with the very shallow reef! Other uses are marginal and there are no facilities here.

Beach is narrow and there is shade, but the shade comes from kiawe, so watch for thorns where you walk and sit! The reef comes right up to the shoreline, and the bottom remains shallow well out into the ocean. Be careful to walk on one of the sandy underwater paths, and not on reef. The snorkeling is better the further out you go where dramatic columns of reef ascend from the sandy sea floor almost to the surface of the water.
