Where is the snack bar located?

There is a snack bar at Hanauma Bay.

It is located before entry into the admissions area. This means that if you’re down at the beach and decide you want food, you’ll have to make the trek (or $1.25 tram ride) back up to the top, and then buy your food. If you’re looking for some post-snorkeling food, then this wouldn’t be a problem!

If you do leave the admissions area, make sure to get your hand stamped if you plan on heading back down to the beach. This allows you to make a re-entry.
