The Fronting Makena Landing is a large flat cove, ideal for snorkellers, standing up paddlers and canoeists. Off the coast of Nahuna Point is a favourite snorkeling and diving site, also known as Five Caves, Five Graves, Turtle Town or Turtle arches. Each of these designations refers to the two main characteristics of the area: leafy marine tortoises and submarine shells.
Marine tortoises are almost always a warranty, while the submarine arcs provide a one-of-a-kind SCUBA dive as well. However, keep in mind that this place can be quite full with single people and business itineraries. The Makena Landing Parc has a cobbled car site, a small grass area for grilling, showering and toilets.
When you plan a marine action, choose early in the mornings as the wind usually refreshes by 11am. Big southern and western swell, especially in the summers, creates bad snorkelling and diving opportunities and makes it hard to launch kayaks/SUPsextreme. There is a rescue sanctuary a few leagues away on Big Beach.
