Pu'uhonua o Honaunau Bay (Two Step)

South Kona is shielded by the mountainous Maunaloa, making the waters on the southwest side of Hawaii’s Big Island calm and clear. A perfect example of this is at beautiful Honaunau Bay, also called Two-steps. “Two-steps” refers to a spot on the shoreline where the volcanic rock has been neatly worn away into a convenient “two-step” entry point for snorkelers and divers. Abundant fish and honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles) can be seen in Honaunau’s warm waters.
