Tunnels Beach is a fantastic snorkeling and diving spot on the North Shore just past Hanalei near the Ha'ena Beach Park. There is an inner and an outer reef, with the inner reef running up to the shore and the outer horseshoe shaped reef about 60 yards offshore. There is an amazing variety of reef fish and normally green sea turtles can found here. The water is calm on the inner right side of the reef making it an excellent spot for new divers and snorkeling. On the left side where the reef slopes to 60 feet you will find lava formations, tunnels and caverns recommend for the more advanced divers. Sea life often spotted are wrasse, trigger fish, rabbit fish, trumpet fish, tangs, moray eels and green sea turtles.
Please note: Please use extra caution during the winter months due when surf conditions are high. There is a very limited amount of parking space at this beach so you should arrive early or park at Ha’ena Beach and walk from there.
