This park has every thing good beach, a protect area for swimming, play ground, picnic areas and a walking path. I even renewed my vows there. The water in the walled in area is a lttle cloudy if you wish to snorkel and it can get a little crowded. But it is a great place to take you small children.

Pretty nice beach with restroom facilities. Great place to meet the locals who are more than willing to answer any questions and give you ideas as to what to do while in Kauai. Take your own beach chairs or just throw out your towel.

We didn't get a chance to spend a lot of time hear, but I am happy to say that we stopped for a few hours on our last day of our trip. This is a great family beach park for swimming, snorkeling, or just relaxing. There are 2 pool-like areas filled with calm water that were created with families in... More

Smaller park, along the highway so easily found. Has bathrooms, picnic area and on the beach for snorkeling. For children there is a large play structure.

We took our 20-month old grandson and he had the best time walking around the playground. His favorites were the slide and swing. The park kept him happy and busy for over an hour...We then went across the street to the beach and he had the best time running into the water. The park has done a great job blocking... More

Took a walk on this beach after lunch. It was a relatively quiet beach with mostly locals. We sat down to watch kitesurfers and drink wine.

This park has 2 playgrounds both are outstanding. They are built with artistry and imagination! Lots of mosaics hand done by local artists and school children. The Bridges has ramps going all through it so even a child in a wheelchair could explore it's magic. Wow! It is outstanding. We walked the path there that runs from one end down... More
