If you love sea turtles, you won’t want to miss Turtle Town, a popular snorkeling and kayak spot near Makena Landing Beach Park. Here, you can see dozens of Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, or “Honu” in Hawaiian, swimming among the coral reefs and feeding on seaweed.
Honu are the most common of the three sea turtle species native to Hawaii, and they have a long and rich history. They have been around for over 100 million years, surviving the dinosaurs and many other changes. They are also revered in Hawaiian culture as symbols of creation, longevity, and wisdom. By observing these gentle creatures, you can learn more about the health and diversity of the marine ecosystem.
