The snorkeling here is amazing. Yes it's a little rocky getting out but you just have to be careful! We saw so many fish and 2 giant sea turtles. It is definitely worth a stop. And if you don't have your own snorkeling gear there is a place to rent from right on the beach!

A fairly small beach and very private. No crowds like Kaanapali Beach. Great beach for kids, good snorkeling, whale watching and swimming. Best of all, it's next to a great place to eat at, The Gazebo. Open for breakfast and lunch only, and very good food.

We heard about this beach from the snorkel store and how great the snorkeling was... It was awesome! There were so many colorful fish and fish I haven't see the last 4 times I have been here. There were quite a few turtles too. Beautiful beach and not too crowded either.

This is a beautiful beach. It can get a little rough and waves can get high and there is a current so be careful but it is a beautiful beach to sun yourself, bogie board, and even try snorkeling out a bit. There is the Hano Kai restaurant for food and it is a great choice. It is a fun... More

The beach is situated like a cove with rocks on both sides of the beach. The sandy beach is a smaller size and with high tide the waves can completely takeover what little sand there is so beware of your valuables! We were here for two day and the first day the waves were perfect and we paddle boarded all... More

We had fun looking for turtles/fish - very clean bathrooms etc. Not much to dislike here! There is a lifeguard and some great places for beginners to snorkel!

I loved this quaint little bay.. It has a beautiful white sandy beach with easy access into a great snorkeling bay. There are lots of spots to swim with sandy bottoms. Every time I go here I see lots of fish and at least 4-5 turtles. The turtles will swim right beside you..😁 it is a spectacular spot for sunsets... More

Went to Napli Bay Beach yesterday Even with the trades kicking up around 15 mph the water was clear and calm. We saw a turtle and tons of fish. Had to park a ways away and entered through the beach access. The sand is real deep and hard on the wife's knee so exited through the resort. Great sandy beach... More
