  • I want to sunny weekday afternoon, I stopped by! Was going to American village near rent sun loungers and umbrellas too relaxing how the NAP has been. And children in front of Schwab to Walla Walla, it became quite bustling but yet his is enough. On the beach to go swimming in the swimming area is narrow, not because such a situation (a DoubleClick ̵͈́ turn ˂ ̵͈̀) ʊʊ

  • The color of the sea is relatively clean, sushi, a children's playground and guests can enjoy on the beach outside. Also, outside of swimming space and enjoying marine sports, is a lively beach. Ideal if only a little, shady spaces in between and extravagant demands.

  • Araha Park and Beach have it all for beach-goers: a good-sized space to swim (though the water is too warm in the summer!), beach, rental umbrellas and chairs, volleyball, picnic tables, a concession ...  more »
  • Sand is great. Area is also nice. Beware of "Dangerous Jellyfish" season (currently experiencing in June) as they close off most of the water to swimming leaving waist deep water with no cool fish/things to explore. Beach is also fairly close to American Village (15 min walk) and has a Lawson's across the street. Water clarity isint the best on the island especially if windy/low to high tide. Great place to just catch rays and maybe play volleyball if the wind isint too bad.
  • Nice beach with rentals ranging from play sets to bbq grills with tents and seating. Playground and basketball court right on the beach side. There's a few night spots down on the north end. Can get crowded and hard to grab parking, but it is a great relaxing spot.
  • Nice little beach with easy access to the water. Good for watching sunset. Toilets available. Parking right next to the beach.
  • Great beach- some locals and many US families. You also get to see the airforce planes ✈️ flying overhead 😀
  • I wouldn't come here as a tourist. It's a beach for local families (mainly military). American accents of kids playing soccer and the distant view of that ugly Ferris wheel at the American village.

The beach to the north offers a selection of mid-range hotels and rental apartments near the sea, while the area of waterfront development around the American Village Ferris wheel has a collection of upmarket hotels close to some of the most popular restaurants. Budget-friendly guesthouses and rentals lie in the more residential districts inland.
