|Hanauma Bay is one of Hawaii's most popular tourist
attractions-and a big money maker for the state. Thousands of people
per day pay the $7.50 to get in unless you are a Hawaii
resident-then it is free. You must attend a 15 minute video to tell
you not to walk on the reef or bother the fish. Then all the
tourists step out of the theatre and go right down to the bay and do
exactly what they are not supposed to do!
The left side has plenty of fish, although there are fish all over the bay. Go beyond the reef if you dare on a nice day-bring a float and fins so you can make it back in. The swaying coconut trees and the sun sparkling off the water will remind you of Hawaii long ago-
