Hanauma Bay & Coco Head!

Today we decided to head down south towards Waikiki.
We planned because of the beautiful sunny day to head to Hanauma Bay.
For those that dont know what it is, it is one of the best Reef's in the world. Lots of marine life and it is conserved by the Hawaiian parks, marine and wildlife organisations.
It is also one of the biggest attractions in Hawaii.

So it was a must to goto!

We went snorkeling for a few hours and saw some unbelievable marine life!!..
Swam with 2 Sea Turtles and i went to take the video camera out in the housing and i got in the water and i found water inside the camera. Luckily nothing got damaged but its all fixed now!!.. 1 Piece of sand can do it all!!


In the Mustang heading to Coco Head!!..


Now this is CRAZY!
It is something that only many locals know about.

Its an extinct Volcano with a no longer used railroad track to the top.
So it is not a man made track. over the years it has formed to steps and people now use this as an intense form of exercise.
Pretty high up and after the rail bridge it becomes about a 70 degrees incline!

I carried my whole camera backpack up this thing which weighed in around 8-10kgs...
What an endurance workout it was for me....

Now this is only the start of the road...And look how steep it is!!

BUT when we finally got to the top.. It was the most AMAZING VIEW EVER!!... Unfortunately the clouds were around so we didnt get a perfect sunset but it was still amazing!!!....

We were last to leave the top after sunset, the moon was out and it was dark walking back down. The light from the baseball field gave us a way down. Was an unbelievable experience and a hard workout!!..

Overall over 2000 steps!!!
