27 Jun Oahu: Blue Atoll
The most beautiful part of Oahu is along the East side and be ready to spend a relaxing and enjoyable day around that area. I would suggest you to take the scenic drive and stop by as many beaches as you can – Sandy Beach, Lanikai Beach…etc. My most favourite one is Waimanalo Bay – miles of velvety white sands, turquoise blue water and relatively way less crowds than rest of the beaches. You won’t get disturbed by others and each will get to take a little slice of beach heaven. Take a deep breath of salty air and let the warm ocean breeze swept through the hair….life’s good and I couldn’t ask for more.
If you are into snorkelling and marine life, don’t miss out the spectacular destination along East coast – Hanauma Bay . You may be intimidated by the admission fee and limited parking, but Hawaiians are spending tremendous effort to preserve the wild life and limit visits to minimize impact to the living coral reefs. With respecting a few rules, you’ll get to swim in one of the most desirable snorkelling waters, and if you are lucky enough you’ll get to observe the lovely sea turtles. You’ll get much more chance to spot little sea creatures in the morning, so plan your visit early and road trip along East side in the afternoon.
