Manini'owali/Kua Bay and swimming with the endangered green sea turtle

This is another installment from our Big Island trip – we spent a morning at Manini'owali/Kua Bay in the Kekaha Kai State Park. I have to say that this is one of the most breathtaking beaches I have ever been on.

Beautiful white sand, turquoise water, black volcanic rock, and as if that wasn’t enough of a reason to hang out there, we also got to go snorkeling with four green sea turtles who happened to be eating off the rocks near the shoreline.

We swam right next to them, they were quite relaxed with our presence, and in fact with the waves we bumped into each other several times as well.

Needless to say we had some rather pleased traveler’s after this visit!
