Great Beach. Plenty of room and plenty of sand. Nice little area to the right of the bay to snorkel. Safe place to swim and play in the surf.

This beach is in a protected bay so we were able swim later in the day than some of the other beaches. The beach has two sides. One has stronger waves that are great for body surfing and the other side is tamer and great for just floating or swimming. The two downsides are that parking can be a challenge... More

This is the first beach I have seen in Hawaii...we come from Perth Western Australia and we have some of the most spectacular beaches in the world...but this beach is how I pictured it to be from the text books I read as a little girl...Gillian where are you...I think I found your island... Love it...

Perfect crescent beach, decent snorkeling, nice clear waters. It is a little bit secluded from parking, so be prepared to park up the road and walk in. The beach is steeply sloped toward the water, and the sand is very deep, so a good workout in the sand. Awesome beach!

If you happen to be in Napili, check this beach out. Mostly frequent by locals and occupants of small resorts around it. Parking maybe difficult as you park on the street. Closest restaurant is the Sea House.

Im laughing at the reviews......."Dont miss this place", "always delivers", " best breakfast ever", "never disappoints" " a must try", etc......I must say its no big woop. Its a decent breakfast with the standard greasy spoon fair with some Hawaiian flair but you know....whatever. If you go.....you will stand in line for an hour in the sun. When I say... More

Great quiet beach with a cove like atmosphere so waves are not as extreme as other beaches. We saw very large sea turtles by the rocks which was very exciting. The beach can be small at high tide so put your stuff up on rocks high. There is shade here if you get there early. There us a shower and... More

This beach is awesome for snorkeling! There are reefs very close to the shore, and there's a ton of them! Great fish to see and I had a turtle swim about a foot away from me!

Nice beach in a small cove. Beach is nice but on the small side. Drop off to the waterline is steep so surf is very rough. Be ready to get knocked off your feet if you are not careful. Another beach only a couple of minutes north of this beach is much better for swimming and snokeling and it has... More

This is the perfect beach for families!!! The waves are mellow and your kids will have a blast either bodyboarding or snorkeling. The beach was crowded with families when we went, but the kids can make friends when they are in the water. Not a beach for honeymooners. There is only one place to get some food and it has... More
