This is one of the best beaches of Hawaii. The water is warm, the snorkeling great and if you are lucky, you will see a sea turtle come out to shore. Loved it!

If you want to see Honu, this is the place to do it! Nice snorkeling, too. The beach was very clean, and close to restaurants. We enjoyed our time there.

We went to several beaches in Kauai and this was my FAVORITE! This beach is so beautiful and so unique. The waves crash in the middle making it look like it's two different beaches.

Bring your snorkel and mask, lots of sunscreen. Beautiful beach, great for swimming and snorkeling. Free parking, food nearby and some tree shade. We went twice during our two week vacation.

What a beautiful beach-- Saw so many sea turtles here and a monk seal snoozing on the beach. One can snorkel, swim and surf or "boogie board" here -- great for everyone. I foolishly forgot to apply sunscreen and wound up with a blistering sunburn after just 1 1/2 hours. Pile on the sunscreen! The colour of the water is... More

This is a GREAT beach to snorkel at, swim, surf or sunbathe. The weather is wonderful on the south shore of Kauai and the water is crystal clear.

Fun beach break, surf was a bit too high for me. Lots of roaming chickens! Across the street from rental shop and restaurant (a little pricey)
