Shark's Cove and Local Beaches Within Walking Distance


Walk past a few houses, and you will find Shark’s Cove, a small rocky bay forming part of the Pupukea Beach Marine Preserve.  This snorkeler's delight is characterized by blue water and an impressive amount of sea life.  Large smooth boulders and coral heads comprise the bottom where light dances with vibrant colors.  There are small caves and ledges for marine life to hide while the walls of the surrounding cliffs provide calmer water attracting schooling surface fish.  Shark's Cove is one of Hawaii's most famous snorkeling and diving beaches, so take advantage of your location and go when the time is right.  On the south side of Shark’s Cove is the Pupukea tidepool; a great place to wade and explore.
