The water is a sparkling blue, and green. During low tide walk out and experince sea cucumbers and other rare sea creatures. Hermet crabs walk all along the beach, a treat for my young daughter and grandchildren. You can search around for sea glass or pottery that has washed ashore. A must see!!

We were booked in the nearby Vessel Campana hotel, which overlooks this little beach and loved people watching and picnicing at the free tables on the beach. Once we brought our own picnic, and the other time we booked the Bbq package from the Sunset Beach Bar, which offers unlimited drinks for 2 hours, meats, a gas BBQ on your... More

This small beach is closer to the American village (and all the accompanying restaurants & shops) but in our opinion not nearly as good as Araha beach which is a little further down the coast. The beach is manned by lifeguards and the swimming area is enclosed by buoys & nets to protect you from the jellyfish. There are toilets... More

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
