Best Snorkeling Beaches on Oahu
The beach and ocean. They're the main reason you're coming to Hawaii, right? But there is more to the beach and ocean than simply swimming, splashing, and building sand castles. There's an entire world under the sea and it's waiting to be explored.


Never snorkeled before? Then first read up on How To Snorkel and you'll probably find that it's not as difficult or scary as you may have thought. There are also plenty of places you can snorkel, which we'll cover, without having to go far away from a beach. Of course, there are also some places that require a boat to reach but the journey will be worth it!


Don't forget to bring your mask, fins, snorkel. Of course, you may want to first read Should I Bring My Own Snorkel Gear To Hawaii? along with How To Snorkel if you're new to snorkeling. Finally, and this is a huge one, don't forget to bring sunscreen with you to Protect Yourself From Sunburn & Skin Cancer and read Hawaii Dangers - Read Before You Go.

Now, onto Hawaii's amazing snorkeling beaches, broken down by island.
