There is no public access to this small beach. To reach this spot, one must crawl under a wire fence and trespass over private property. No public facilities whatsoever. Once there, not worth the effort of transgression. Much better snorkeling experiences can be found on the island of Maui.

Seas were too rough for snorkeling in December, but swimming was nice. You cannot beat the view and the serenity. Easily found shade for napping. Only a few people were there.

many nice areas to explore and snorkel, bring a boogie board and snorkel gear, some areas have rocks and others are mostly sandy, it all depends on which beach you go to

Beautiful beach. When we were there, we were the only people in sight. The views, the solitude, the sky and the sea made for a very restful time. A gorgeous place to visit.

One of my favorite places to find seaglass and interesting rocks. There is a nice little sandy cove.

There was no signage so I am assumming that this little white sand beach with good shallow swiming was Waialua beach.The snorkeling was not good as far as I could tell but it was a nice place to hang out.
