Bay, beach, dive site, snorkeling site, surf site, windsurf site, Kawela, Oʻahu. Calcareous sand beach on the shore of Kawela Bay, the most protected bay on Oʻahu's North Shore. Residents of the bay were evicted in 1986 to make way for a resort that was never built. Development of the resort was to include public access to the bay, so without the development there is no public access. The dive and snorkeling sites are inside the bay, and several surfing and windsurf sites are outside. Lit., the heat.
