  • Great little beach. Can be a bit of a muddy trek down to the sand from the parking lot when it has been rainy. Normally safe to snorkel, can be murky at times. Decent surf break beyond the left side. Trail up by the picnic tables lead to a few more beaches and the abandoned molokai ranch tent lodge.
  • Great place, it's very clean untouched feel. Kids totally had a blast. Can't wait to return!
  • Love swimming in this cove.
  • I found what appears to be an old airplane wing under water. Nearby is a very large anchor, presumably from the Dixie Maru.
  • Sheltered waves
