BEST SNORKELING SPOT
When it comes to snorkeling, the trick is to find a spot where the fish aren’t camera shy and the sea turtles make regular appearances. Our spies tell us this sheltered little nook at the end of Ka`anapali Beach is a hot hang for creatures of the deep that dip and dive around the colorful coral. The place is justifiably popular with the snorkel crowd, who alternate between facedown floating in the gentle waves and belly-up sunning on the powdery sand. Watch for special cameo appearances by eel and octopi.
