Manana Island Circumnavigation

From Openwaterpedia

Jump to: navigation, search

A circumnavigation around Manana Island is a tropical treat. It is a small island located off of Makapuu Beach on the island of Oahu in Hawaii, U.S.A. It is a challenging and potentially dangerous swim around an incredibly gorgeous uninhabited seabird sanctuary island near one of the most popular beaches in Hawaii. The island is near one of the most famous body surfing beaches on Oahu and is called Rabbit Island by the locals.

The Makapuu Beach Park nearly always has rough water conditions and strong currents and sharks are an ever-present danger. Surfers and kayakers have been attacked by sharks in this area and extreme caution is strongly advised. If no experienced and vigilant escorts are available, swimmers are advised to avoid swimming in this area.
