One of the most beautiful beaches in the world !! Amazing clear water for snorkelling, swimming, paddle boarding. Turtles were in abundance during our stay and both sunrise and sunset are not to be missed, the colours in the sky are incredible

Gorgeous water . . . nice beach with a cliff-type angle to it . . . but there are NO bad beaches. A short walk out to the point also provides a wonderful camera shot of the entire bay.

It was fantastic, lots of kids and adults have fun in the waves - lots of boogie boards. Looked like they had places to BBQ

It's just so picturesque, it's calmer by the restaurant, great fun for kids but if you're looking for bigger waves to jump in then just walk down the beach further

Just a beautiful beach to spend the afternoon. Parking was not much of a problem and the Gazebo Restaurant is close by as well.

This beach is bigger than Kapalua beach and offers more for the whole family. Good snorkeling and calm water at the north end, bigger waves for boogie boarding and surfing at the south end. there was something for everyone. Good reef parallel to the beach for snorkeling. It's a ways out, so if you want to take your kids out... More

The beach is pretty small--it sits on the bay and the sand banks are fairly steep, which results in not alot of flat sand beach area. We saw one person sand surfing down to the water!
