Hanauma Bay excursions

A tour of Hawaii is not complete without a visit to Hanauma Bay. A visit to Hanauma Bay is not complete without experiencing the two paths which go along each side of the bay.
This is a photo of three visiting Korean nursing students that I escorted around Oahu when I lived in Honolulu for one year.
If you follow the path to your right around Hanauma Bay then you'll arrive at this cove called "Witch's Brew" It's an exciting place to stand around and get splashed by the frequent waves crashing against the lava rocks creating a cauldron of blowholes and horizontal showers.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Fun Fun Fun!
  • Cons:The Witch's Brew can be dangerous so use common sense and caution
  • In a nutshell:Just two more reasons to go to Hanauma Bay

    The importance of going to the toilet can never be understated. lol! But of course you also give you other usual high standard of accurate & helpful advice. We really liked it here, but the girls were a bit little to get into the snorkelling.

    I use to enjoy being flushed often. Nice to be reminded of the place. Most tourists don't walk around the point to find it.

    You can go into the Toilet Bowl and get flushed up " think some people actually "go" in Toilet Bowl??? P.S. Speaking of 5 or 6 senses: I think this is smell, no?!

    We were so enthralled with snorkelling, we never had time to venture towards the toilet bowl. Now we have somewhere new to go see on our next visit!
