Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve
While on vacation last year to Hawaii, I was able to visit the most visited beach on the island - Hanauma Bay. A marine ecosystem located on one of the beautiful islands of Hawaii, 10 miles east of Waikiki. As tourist enter Hanauma Bay Natural Preserve, a short video welcomes you to the world of the marine life. The video goes into some Hawaiian history, what to do when you are in the bay and encourages you to help perseve the coral reef that has amazed visitors for decades. Koko Head Regional Park is a Nature Preserve dedicated to protecting the fragile marine life in the Bay. Hanauma is the first Marine Life Conservation District in the State.
