Mahalo to Rachel Barsha for sharing this pretty photograph with us for Aloha Friday Photos.
Rachel’s photograph reveals Honolua Bay on the northwest aspect of Maui. As you possibly can see it’s tremendously stunning.
Rachel took this photograph on an August day in 2017. As this bay is considerably north-facing the ocean situations change seasonally. It late spring, summer time and early autumn, it tends to be clean. When the water is calm it’s improbable for snorkeling. (See our Honolua snorkeling experience.)
Although Honolua Bay tends to be calm in summer time months, it’s a distinct scene when winter swells are available in. It attracts native surfers as an alternative of snorkelers.
For a seasonal distinction, we thought it might be attention-grabbing to share a photograph we took of Honolua Bay on a “wintery” January day. (Observe that compared to the vantage level of Rachel’s photograph, our photograph was taken close to the identical level, however pivoted proper in direction of the northern finish of Honolua Bay.) Our photograph doesn’t do justice to the peak of the waves, however the ample sea foam is evident proof of extra tumultuous ocean situations.
Earlier than going to any seashore or bay, at all times examine the security first. A very good place to examine situations is at HawaiiBeachSafety.com.
Completely happy Aloha Friday!
