A large unique collection of tidepools and spring-fed pools, some volcanically heated, extends approximately 200 yards out into the ocean. It's a great place for novice snorkelers to explore coral and a variety of fish in the calm water. Avoid the pools that are on private property, but the Waiopae Ponds adjacent to the ocean are public and fine for exploring. Visit during the week; weekends tend to be crowded with locals. Located off Hwy 137, take Kapoho-Kai Rd., left on Kaheka and right on Wai,??opae.
