From the over 200 ft of ocean shoreline on the property, you can float, swim or snorkel in your very own private warm, calm ocean lagoon or swim further out to explore the extensive coral pools.

These warm tide pools are such incredible fish habitat that they are one of only 11 marine preserves in the entire State! Enjoy the safest and best snorkeling in East HI from this secluded beautiful location.
