We ended up at this beach every day during our first trip to HHI. We weren't staying at a resort on the beach, so this beach was perfect for us - free (and ample) parking, showers, restrooms, changing rooms, the water fountain feature for kids to play in, benches, swing chairs, etc. The beach is clean and there are waves...

If you aren't staying beachfront, this is a great place to go to hit the beach. Easy access, great amenities and close to the Tiki Bar. Something for everyone.

The beach is nice and fairly clean with life guards and some handicapped accessibility. Showers and several nice shady swings and benches at the entrance. The best thing for those with little ones is the splash pad where you can get those sandy little bodies to rinse off after playing at the beach. Also good for a last minute foot... More

This is one of the best locations to stay at while visiting HHI! We have been going to HHI for 38 years and it's still a terrific plaza and beach location!

Absolutely beautiful. The view of the ocean is fantastic. Always a lot of people, but better if you go later at night. Also there's a sitting area off the beach, which includes swinging chairs.

Coligny Beach is a fun area to go with your family of all ages. The beach has easy public parking and easy access. You can rent beach chairs and cabanas at the beach. Reserve them early! Many stores, restaurants, and shops are in the area. The children will love the water spouts in the water feature greeting them as they... More

This is my favorite beach! My daughter loves the splash pad on the boardwalk when you get to the beach and the facilities are nicely managed. During low tide, the beach is HUGE and has lots of tide pools which are great for kids who don't like the waves. We spent hours building sand castles and catching (and releasing) hermit... More

As mentioned in reviews here, just a beautiful beach and recently renovated, go there for the beach not the shops, we stopped at the shopping section first and were accosted by people trying to sell Condo tours, they start by offering free directions and recommendations and then into their sale pitch, they are located all over the center in little...
