“Easiest snorkling adventure with great fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

Very easy to snorkel, just park suit up go in the water. Fresh water showers, great grass park and very safe. Swim with some huge sea turtles and look at pretty fish. Some rocks to watch out for and coral, but not to bad. Perfect for children to see fish.

“Great snorkeling but too rocky for swimming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Easy and free parking. Beautiful beach. Very crowded, obviously because it's a special place.

“Good for laying on the beach; not big waves”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

This is a great beach for families or people who want to just hang on the beach. There are a lot of rocks in the area and many choose to snorkle here, so you can imagine how it is not ideal for playing in the waves and/or boogie boarding. Interestingly enough, we visited the beach on our first day in Kauai and had a precious monk seal "beach" itself right by us! This is truly a unique sight. There were also many giant sea turtles playing in the waves right where we were sitting. This is a good beach for families.

“Best beach in the south”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2011

Beautiful beach and one of the safer ones,especially in the winter months when the north is pretty rough. Great place for sunsets, not too crowded and you may even see an endangered Monk Seal coming up for a rest on shore!
