Lisahunsicker, I believe this is the most beautiful beach in the United States and many many people have visited there. The photo was taken years ago but I uploaded it to Panoramio last month. It is a paradise all right! I used to travel more but I travel less now partly because I have seen many beautiful places already. David. My Contest - "CALIFORNIA DREAMING"

A great shot of Hanauma Bay - quite unique aspect, too. Just curious - have you ever tried getting beyond the inner reef there? How was it out there? I've always wanted to do that (been there a few times), but the waters have invariably been too rough for that. Looking forward to the next trip (only a month from now), and thank you for posting this!

theverbiage, thank you for your nice comments and visit. I have swum outside the reef and the "view" under is absolutely incredible. 3 to 4 stories deep crystal clear water with schools of wonderful fish swaying with the waves effortlessly. It was a tough swim to get out there but once out there it is not rough at all. I did not carry a flow board which is highly recommended for safety reasons. Bon Voyage! I am envious, David from California

Wow, that's incredible, David! Thank you, I will try getting out there the next time.
