Last month I stopped by Hanauma Bay for a quick afternoon snorkel and was shocked to find that the shore was littered with thousands (probably millions state-wide) of tiny (and mostly dead) spotted reef crabs. According to this article from Hawaii News Now, top Hawaii marine biologists are unsure of why they washed up in the surf.
Hanauma Bay (pronounced “ha-na-OO-mah”, in Hawaiian) is one of those places that you must visit when vacationing in Hawaii. Hanauma Bay is located on the southeast coast of the Island of Oahu. Hana means ‘bay’ and uma means ‘curve,’ hence the translation of Curved Bay. It’s basically the next door neighbor to Koko Crater, remember that place where you can get a crazy good cardio workout?
