Good for a quick dip.

Can get crowded with locals on weekends. Usually there are lots of children. It's got a small area with lots of little fish, and it's good for snorkeling, especially beginners.

This is an excellent beach and it wasn't very crowded. They have a natural lagoon-type area where most people were swimming and laying out. We ventured a little bit to the south and found ourselves alone on the beach. The water was warm and calm. The lifeguard station was near our location, so we felt safe in the water. This... More

The park is wonderful for those with children learning to snorkel or not the strongest swimmer yet. our 8 and 10 year old were able to peacefully snorkel in a safe environment and see what they missed in our open water snorkel adventure.

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
