“Nice little park and beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

My husband and I got married here about 6 years ago, and returning in May 2013 we found it hadn't changed a bit! There's a lovely little beach on one side that's great for swimming and paddle-boarding, and a view of the marina and diamond head on the other side. There's also a great view of the ocean breakers directly in front. The park itself was nice with lots of little seating areas and trees - great for a picnic. Lots of locals exercising there and tourists getting married. A lovely little spot.

A lovely little beach nice for children safe place to swim very calm, glad they didn't build an hotel here like they intended too. Only a few people there when we went and lots of grass around the beach for family bbqs.

“Gorgeous sunsets, nice morning swim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This man made beach and lagoon is great to swim laps in, since there are no waves. Perfect for kids to play without worry about undertow, there is a rock wall enclosing this pretty little beach.
