“a large tame fish population”
Kahaluu Beach Park is a tiny sheltered cove on the west side of the Big Island right in the town of Kailua Kona. It’s one of only a handful of beaches in Hawaii with such a large tame fish population. Kahaluu Beach is not a marine preserve, yet for having no fishing limitations, it rivals and sometimes surpasses the quantity of fish you’ll see at a dedicated marine sanctuary. The fish here are unusually comfortable around snorkelers. Typically, schools of large surgeon fish will swim up and greet you as you wade in. I've even had them nibble on my fins while swimming. The cove is almost completely surrounded by a partially submerged rock wall that keeps the larger waves out while still allowing the gentler ocean currents to flow in freely.
