THE MOST RELIABLY SAFE WATERS ON THE ISLAND
You’ll find Pauoa Beach in front of the Fairmont Orchid in the Mauna Lani Resort. This stunning white sand beach is protected by a crescent of lava walls that creates a safe and calm area for swimming and snorkeling. The beach is surrounded by palm trees and tropical greenery.
The University of Hawaii’s conservation efforts have resulted in Pauoa Bay having some of the healthiest coral reefs in Hawaii. In the winter, in addition to the wide variety of reef fish, you may spot a few dolphins and whales out on the waves.
Visitors can park in the Fairmont Orchid’s lot, and will want to bring their own umbrellas and chairs, as the furniture on the beach is for guests staying at the hotel.
