Kamohio Bay, Kaho'olawe, essence is found in the translation of its name "gust of wind". This bay is one of two large bays on Kaho'olawe. It is also known for the small island Pu'u Koa'e located to the south and west of the bay.

One of the unique features of this portion of Kaho'olawe is the steep topography that lies immediate shoreline. Small sections of rock beach exist in this area, and the water is phenomenally clear. Also, because of the leeward attributes of the area, this region was used as an anchorage for vessels transiting the general area.

Like many areas surrounding Kaho'olawe, the Kamohio Bay area is known for some first-rate fishing. Tidal action can be tricky in this area, so please regard nautical charts if you are sailing offshore.

Like the rest of Kaho'olawe, this area was denuded of regional trees by centuries of over use and deforestation. The general low lie of Kaho'olawe commands very little rainfall from passing sea clouds, so fresh water has always been an issue for regrowth and general consumption use on the Island. This however translates into very clear scuba diving conditions from minimal fresh water run-off contributed by rain.

Kamohio Bay is also synonymous with the Hawaiian Ohana cleanup effort of Kaho'oolawe. Many landing parties through the years have used Kamohio Bay as their destination location from Maui, Lanai, the big Island, and Molokai.

Kamohio Bay is not available for touring, swimming, snorkeling or beachcombing. Please respect this beach, Kamohio Bay and the adjacent waters as per the nautical guidelines.
