Brought our young kids here at a friends recommendation - wonderfully protected pools for them to learn snorkeling! They were able to see fish and enjoy the water. Perfect for inexperienced snorkelers and families!

Five years ago, we visited one of the hotels bordering this beach. The nights walking on the beach were fantastic, clear starry nights, and few if any other people. Even though there are a few hotels on the beach it was basically abandoned at night. It was a fantastic experience, like having a private beach. So, we returned. Five years... More

You must go here to watch a sunrise. Best view on the island! Very scenic and clean park with bathrooms. A safe swimming area has been walled off with rocks.

This is the best beach for families with kids. There is an area in the water walled in with rocks, protecting it from the currents of the ocean, but still more than just an ankle pool. It was perfect for the kids to swim in, and had some fish in it. The sand is soft and there are washrooms and... More

This beach park has an enormous playground that the kids will certainly love. The beach is also very calm and excellent for the little ones. If you go to Wailua, you should not miss this park.

Amazing day here with the kids. There are two swimming areas in the ocean that are encircled by a ring of rocks that protect them from the waves. Smaller area is shallow and great for young kids (fish in there too!) the larger area is bigger and deeper and had fish as well. My daughter saw some puffer fish, blue... More

This is a lovely park with excellent facilities and lots of room to find your own space on the beach or in the park. If you want to swim in the protected area, the beach is a little crowded, but the swimming there is great and feels perfectly safe. If you just want to set up to read and enjoy... More

These protected pools make a nice safe spot for snorkeling or swimming for all ages. They are filled with fish (though limited in variety) and just a calm way to enjoy an otherwise rough side of the island. With okay facilities and showers, both grass and sand beach, and picnic tables it's also good for a picnic. The only thing... More
