Kealakekua Bay State Park
Kealakekua Bay State Park Review
This underwater marine reserve is one of the most beautiful spots in the state. Dramatic cliffs surround super-deep, crystal clear, turquoise water chock-full of stunning coral pinnacles and tropical fish. The dolphins that frequent the sanctuary should not be disturbed, as they use the bay to escape predators and sleep. The brown sand at west-facing Napoopoo Beach, washed away during Hurricane Iniki in 1992, is slowly returning. This is a nice, easy place to enter the water and swim, as it's well protected from currents. No lifeguards; at times, you may feel tiny jellyfish stings.
