Views of canyons and lush green maquis sculpt the backdrop at Tunnels Beach. The crescent-shaped beach and its large reef provide an excellent spot for diving and snorkeling, as the reef creates a barrier from the strong currents arriving from the north shore. Admire the jagged canyons and deep valleys eroded over time due to heavy rainfall. The volcanic formation of the island, visible through the underwater caverns formed from lava tubes, makes the beach an ideal snorkeling spot. Surfers can also benefit from the impressive waves beyond the reef. Try scuba diving and explore the inner and outer coral reefs, home to immense marine life, including sea turtles.

Tunnels Beach reviews
A bit of a walk from where you can park but a beautiful long beach. Great view and sunbathing, not great for snorkeling or swimming while we were there, as surf was always too high. more »
This is a local beach, accessible by parking nearby and walking down to it. It's not crowded - there are no services - but to me, it say real Hawaii, a place you go if you live in the neighborhood..... more »
