The actual name of this site is Kahe Point, but is commonly called Electric Beach
due to the electricity-generating plant located directly across the highway
from the entry site. The plant uses seawater to cool its turbines and then returns
this warmed water to the ocean via underground pipes. The warmed water stirs up the
bottom as it flows up and out attracting a great number of feeding fish. It is a great
site to conduct photography and fish identification. The maximum depth is 29 feet.
Sharks Cove was named many years ago because of a meat processing plant that was
located just across the road from the site. At the end of the day, the plant personnel
would take the scraps from the day's processing and throw them into the sea within the cove.
It did not take long for the sharks to figure out that there was a free dinner at the end of the day.
It was a daily event for the local population to come out and watch the sharks eat inside the cove.
The meat plant has been gone for many years and the sharks no longer f requent the cove but the name stayed.
It is an awesome diving and snorkeling site. Maximum depth is 35 feet.
