  • This was a great little beach with lots of room at picnic tables, and such for eating and a lifeguard station for kiddos safety. If you are an experienced snorkeler, you won't really enjoy the snorkel...  more »

  • Very safe Beach for families to go to. The rock walls provide a break point so the waves are not overwhelming. Also a great place to feed fish.
  • Loved this sweet beach with a protected lagoon area. Showers and a parking lot. We snorkeled and saw plenty of fish.
  • A must visit if you have young kids or want calm water to snorkel in. My kids LOVE the park & ask regularly to return...sometimes they even want to skip the water to keep playing with new friends. The beach area is calm due to a wall of rocks shielding it from the waves. Near the rocks are many colorful varieties of fish. Beware that the water is cold in spite of the calm & shallows.
  • I'm a chicken to swim at the beach resort we're staying at,but this place is excellent. We saw so many different schools of fish,it was amazing. Little Nemo was at my feetšŸ˜Š
  • Protected swim area. Designed decades ago with large boulders installed to section off a safe swim area. Also nice, calm snorkeling. At one end of the beach is a sacred Hawaiian religious site worth visiting.
