Take in sunset views and snorkel  Two Step Beach

Honaunau Bay Beach – also called “Two Step Beach” by locals – is a popular destination on the Big Island for snorkeling, fishing and sunset-watching.

It’s next to a popular Big Island attraction that’s also worth checking out: the Place of Refuge. (aka Pu’uhonua O Honaunau Park)

Snorkel “Two Step” Beach

People rave about snorkeling at nearby Captain Cook Beach, but getting there involves a hike or a boat ride. Two Step Beach is a great alternative. It’s not usually crowded, especially in the morning.

Plenty of fish, coral and sea turtles swim in the crystal clear ~80 degree water.

There’s a boat ramp that provides a gradual entrance to a shallow snorkel site. More experienced snorkelers can walk along the edge of rough lava rock to enter a deeper section. This entrance has “two steps” – giving the beach the same name.
