Beautiful beach, never crowded. Usually surfers when the surf is up. I have seen stingrays in the surf.
I was heading to Yokohama beach then came cross this wonderful beach which offers both good waves for suffers and flat area for kids. I can not wait to take my two daughters there next time.
We went to this beach twice during our stay. Both times we were able to park under a big tree and have some shade to escape the sun! The first trip, the water was very nice and the waves were not too big, but there were some on the other side from us where people were surfing. Great place to... More
Waters are tough for swimming with a shore break (make sure kids have lifevests or floatation devices as the undertow can be very strong) We saw turtles swimming in the waves just off shore and whales further out. Combination of reef and sand. Stunning sunset!

Great sand, waves are stong but water is clear and great, terrific snorkelling. Friendly lifeguards. Womderful place to watch surfers and sunsets. Often see turtles and have seen whales offshorehere as well.
I liked the easy access. Lifeguards are happy to give info. Toilets across the street and not much traffic. The water gets deep pretty quick so you really need to be comfortable swimming in deeper water. Watch for surfers on the right side. If snorkeling you can just stay near the beach but if you head out past and to... More
