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

We went to this secluded beach several times. There were usually a few other people, but not at all crowded. It was the only place here on the west end that you can actually get into the water and swim.

This is the only Molokai beach we visited with people on it. Too much turbulence for good snorkeling the day we were there, but great swimming. A beautiful spot!

Dangerously high surf during several days of our December visit pounded breaking waves into this normally protected and calm cove. Even so, It still was a perfect picnic place. I hope to go to Molokai again some day & find this cove calm and inviting.

This is kind of hard to find place, and we were very lucky to find it. The beach is located at the last public beach access. The rocks with smiley faces are actually at the parking, so you won't find them from the main road. Unlike Papohaku Beach, the water is very calm, and suitable for swimming. You see more... More
