I found this little cove to be picturesque and beautiful. The main thing that I did not like about it was that they allow homeless to permanently camp there. It does not feel safe because of that. They surround themselves with junk cars and trash. The beach and water were wonderful other than that. Really Kauai? Maybe you need to address the homeless population before it begins to drive away your main source of revenue which is tourism.

Okay definitely sketchy to get to this park. There were locals here didn't seem too friendly, pretty sure drug deals were going on. Cars stopping and going, guys cycling around. If this stuff wasn't happening it'd be an alright place just watch for dog poop. Pretty private place except for the sounds of roaring planes above.

This was won of the most picturesque beaches when went to. Small waves. Blue water. There is also an outlet of a river forming a fresh water lagoon. The shore goes out a long way before becoming deep. At the time we went the water visiblity for about 2 feet so the snorkeling was minimized to a few minutes. The swimming was great though. The only downfall was the amount of cigarette butts, bottle tops, and other trash on the beach and in the lagoon.

Turned down Hanamaulu road to try to avoid a traffic jam and ended up on this beach. The area around the beach is not real well maintained. Only folks we saw were locals, who seemed to frown on us being there. It is a beautiful protected area in a little cove.

How can you not love a beach? This is a beautiful one, with stunning views and nice water. It was not overly crowded, which I certainly appreciate.

Ok this is the spot to go to with kids! We took surfing lessons at this beach and we loved it SO much we went back 3 more times during our trip. The funny thing is that this is super easy to get to by car, but oddly enough - only a few locals are the only people there. Its shallow and small waves - perfect for families with small children and great for beginning surfers!

Not worth the drive to it. It's not clean there are plenty of local Hawaiians living here. The cove is relatively calm but overall not a place to stay and swim. Dirtly and does not feel too safe. Not even picturesque

This beach was listed on a guide map as picturesque at the mouth of the river but it certainly wasn't. There was garbage on the beach and it seems the homeless were all down there. Thankfully we were only looking to take pictures and not spend the day at the beach.
