A popular water sports and recreation destination, Kaneohe Bay
has been a favorite for boaters because of it's sandbar in the middle of the bay. On a low tide you can walk along the exposed sandbar and enjoy a day of fun in the sun. Many sportfishing charters depart from Kaneohe Bay
due to the easy access to open water.
Nearly all of Kaneohe Bay
can be seen from the Nu'uanu Pali Lookout
was formed when much of the volcano which formed the Ko'olau Mountains
slid into the sea. Running along the central part of the mountain range, it is just one of many amazing geological formations like Diamond Head and Hanauma Bay
to be created by the Ko'olau volcano.
Today, the shores of Kaneohe Bay
are lightly populated and the scenery can be enjoyed on a country drive along Kamehameha Highway.
