On Oahu’s surf-tastic north shore, this protected cove has long been a famous shore diving spot but is now probably better for snorkelers than divers. A rocky and coral covered bottom rather than a sandy one makes it easy to spot the locals as they pop in and out of their cave homes as you bob by on surprisingly calm water. Schools of fish will tickle you close to the surface in the deeper sections and for children the rock pools offer a safe place to learn to snorkel. It’s popularity means Shark Bay can be busy.
