Pretty, sheltered beach with deep fluffy sand. Short walk from the parking spot and a few picnic tables scattered under the trees. There were maybe 6 people there on a weekday with one person snorkeling. He looked like a strong swimmer and the water was still pretty lively, even in the more sheltered bay. Great place for a picnic.

We went here because we heard the sunset was best from here, but we wish we had stayed at Popohaku Beach for the sunset. There is a nice beach where the swimming appeared safe and and a nice walk along the rocks around the cove. Not stunning like Popohaku or Halawa, but worth a look if you are in the... More

Not too many people visit Molokai.Local activist preserving fragile island from developers.For individual visitor who wants to relax,cook his own meal and walk 3 mile beach with few visitors,swim safely at the Dixie bay beach...you found a paradise. I am coming here for over 35 years..and feel home sick to come back.

This was a beautiful, small beach! It was a little crowded when we went (meaning there were maybe 10 other people there) but they took up all the shade!

This small cove is good for all kinds of beach activities, including snorkeling and watching the sunset. It is protected from the surf and so is pretty calm. The best area for snorkeling is on the left side. It is 6-10 feet deep with a strong current in some places that close to rocks. You will not see there many... More

The beach was pretty and water was calm. It was a very small beach and due to rocks on the side of the cove made it hard to explore. There were no rocks on the beach part and only a few in the water, you just need to look where you step

Chances are good that when you come here you will be all by yourself. The water is "relatively" calm due to the shape of the long tiny bay; more so in the summer. Swim with the usual Hawaii caution as always. There is some shade under the trees which are on the edge of the beach.

This is about the only place to go snorkeling from a beach on the island. the snorkeling was good, but not great due to the trade winds stirring up the sand. I did see a lot of cool fishes.

This beach was lovely. Great for swimming and for watching the sunset. Bring everything though as there is nothing around to buy drinks or sunscreen.

On the day we went, the west side had about 6-8' surf, so all other west side beaches were too rough for anyone to get in. Dixie Maru beach has a protected area which is both beautiful and calm, even on rough days. As a result it was "packed" for Molokai standards. Most of the other beaches we walked along... More
