snorkelling big island hawaii

I love everything about snorkelling on Hawaii’s Big Island; it’s wild, elemental, and home to unique and pristine spots that will spoil you for choice. Within the crystal clear tide pools, coral shelves and sandy bays you’ll see an immeasurable amount of coral and fish beyond anything you’d see on the more popular Oahu.

kennall vale cornwall

Deep in the recesses of Cornwall lies Kennall Vale, a tangle of greenery, waterfalls and long-abandoned factory buildings.
