Having American Village right next to it this beach offers a lot of infrastructure. Food and drinks, restrooms, playground, proper parking, everything available.

Public toilets are very clean. there is only cold water though. Beach is staff and you are able to walk around to other beaches on the water front. Also close to America Village. You will need a 100 coin for 3 mins shower.

Other than the fact that you can watch sunset over the ocean here, there is nothing much to be said about this manmade beach

I was told this beach was man-made but cannot ascertain. When I was there, it was the winter season and so the beach was closed. It is prohibited to swim there but if you want you can still soak your feet if the water was not very cold. There are many wooden chairs and tables provided (but for a fee).... More

This beach was right next to our hotel and we had no car, so we had little choice :) It was actually very nice and there were several rental options (not cheap though). There's a net for jellyfish and plenty of people around. Food is not a problem as it's next to the American Village complex. Low tide makes the... More

One of the things I liked about this beach actually was the piped in music that was played all day long. It was a radio station from Hawaii so was perfect beach music. Nothing too noisy or energetic just nice to listen to while relaxing either under the trees up off the beach or while poking in the waters edge,... More

A small beach located near the American village. It has a closed off swimming area for people who want a dip in what seems to be rather clean fresh pacific water. If you want to have a BBQ or just relaxed on a sun lounger the facilities are all there although I don't know how much the fee is. There... More

Sunset Beach is a small beach nestled next to the horrendous American Village. Amazingly enough, the beach doesn't get the same number of tourist riff-raff that the shopping malls do. The beach was refreshing and quiet. Families were barbecuing on the sand, and there were lounges with umbrellas to rent. It's a small beach, but very nice. People say it's... More

people go there and enjoy BBQ. go to office without any preparation and they set up everything for you, including food for BBQ. after you are done with it, it's time to enjoy beautiful, addicting sunset view from the beach.

Small cute sandy beach which is netted in to keep out jellyfish and rockfish. Ice cream machine or ice cream stand are a must. Beer garden is nice and is situated outdoors. There are goats at the hotel for the kids to see. There are showers, bathrooms, and lifeguards. No fees. Pets seem to be ok up on the sidewalk.... More
