  Let's snorkel!!
by KiKitC

As we were riding around the west side of Maui, we noticed an awful lot of cars parked on the side of the road, and many people, with snorkel gear heading down staircases to the coast. As we rounded the hill on top, we looked down and saw Honolua Bay, which looks to be THE spot for snorkeling. We stopped the bike and looked down at the boats and swimmers below. The water was so calm and clear, you could almost see the fish from the top of the cliff.

We decided that we would come back here the next morning after dropping off the bike to go snorkeling. We never made it back to this spot. Ironically, as I was being rolled into the operating room, a picture of this bay hung on the wall. I'll be back...

***Quick Tip*** You will find it common that parking by popular spots like this can be tricky. Not only is it difficult to find available spaces to park on the road, but there were a number of cops writing numerous tickets... watch out.

Directions: Just follow 340 west. It's north of Kapalua. You really cannot miss this beautiful spot (the loads of cars on the road will give it away)
