Tunnels Beach offers a great inner reef area with calmer waters for swimming and kids. The outer reef offers snorkeling and diving.

Makua, aka Tunnels, is known for its incredible mountain scenery. This beach also offers great snorkeling, where people will usually see turtles. Public parking, bathrooms and showers are available at Haena Beach Park located west of Tunnels. Be sure to head to the beach early, parking on the town's streets can be a little challenging.

Great snorkeling

We stopped here to snorkel and swim and were not disappointed. There were tons of fish and two sea turtles while we were there. Theres also a great shallow area if you have little kids with you.

One Of The Best Places To Go Snorkeling

Loved the beach + the drive to it! It can be confusing once you get there on what beach is actually tunnels (it's where all the coral is, not the farthest left side of the beach) but once you find It; you'll get crystal clear waters, turtles and a snorkelers heaven of all kids of fishes.

Best Sunset Spot

Great place to catch rays and relax till sunset!
