    Kahalu'u Beach is wonderful for both surfers, snorklers, and beach goers. The water is clear and calm inside the Bay. Perfect condition almost always for snorklers. You can expect a very close encounter with sea tutle and many different types of fish. It is like swimming inside the aquarium. No kidding! If you go outside the Bay, the wave is strong enough for surfers. No huge waves. Just high enough waves for beginning and intermediate surfers.

    The tide pool at Kahalu'u Beach is wonderful. Small children can see lots of fish and other marine life right there at the
    beach. Turtles often bask in the sun. They are not to be disturbed, though, since they are protected by the law.

    On Earth Day 2007, I was treated with the Micronesian Folk dances at Keauhou Beach Hotel next to the Kahalu'u Beach Park.
    High school students performed several interesting dances for the earth day celebration event at the hotel.

    Surfing is not only done on Oahu's North Shore

    Although Oahu and it's north shore gets all the attention, there is surfing on the Big Island also.
    If you don't surf, you can also get lessons from the Hawai'i Lifeguard Surf Instructors.

    Equipment: If you already surf but left your board at home, you can rent one from either Honolua Surf Co.(329-1001) or Pacific Vibrations(329-3140)
