In terms of ocean activities, Makena Landing offers a prime spot for launching your ocean adventure. Fronting Makena Landing is a large, shallow bay perfect for beginner snorkelers, Stand Up Paddlers, and kayakers. To the right of the bay extends a rocky stretch of coastline that forms Nahuna Point. Just offshore of Nahuna Point is a popular snorkel and dive spot also known as Five Caves, Five Graves, Turtle Town, or Turtle Arches. All of these names allude to the area’s two most prominent features: green sea turtles and underwater lava arches. Sea turtles are almost always a guarantee, while the underwater arches offer a unique SCUBA diving experience. There are colorful corals, vibrant butterfly fish, eels, and even the elusive frog fish. Note, however, that this spot can get quite crowded with individuals and commercial tour boat operators. To avoid the heaviest crowds make sure to get in the water early.
