We visited this beach on a really hot, muggy day in July & there were actually a number of other people there so it was difficult to find a spot in the shade - the trees had thorns rather than leaves - or a spot with a free picnic table. We sat to the right, near the rocks, as you... More

We visited Dixie Maru Beach on a Wednesday and a Friday during the last week in July. Instead of stopping at Dixie, we took the trail to the smaller beach just south. This smaller, more secluded beach probably has a name, but I don't know it. It's clearly visible from Google Earth. It's a ten-minute walk through the woods to... More

Staying at the west end of Moloka'i, we were searching for a beach where we could swim (many of the west end beaches have rough surf) and found it here! It was a quick drive and easy to find using the directions from the visitmolokai.com website. The sand is a bit pebbly but there's a band close to the water... More

Limited parking with no facilities. The beach is in a sheltered cove and safe for swimming. God Bless.

Nice snorkeling along the northern edge of this calm water bay. Be careful around the rocky margins. Our friend slipped, got a deep gash on her leg & had to have stitches.

This is a nice little beach in a sheltered area that is safe for swimming. The sand isn't the nicest and the beach is a bit small.

Pretty, sheltered beach with deep fluffy sand. Short walk from the parking spot and a few picnic tables scattered under the trees. There were maybe 6 people there on a weekday with one person snorkeling. He looked like a strong swimmer and the water was still pretty lively, even in the more sheltered bay. Great place for a picnic.

We went here because we heard the sunset was best from here, but we wish we had stayed at Popohaku Beach for the sunset. There is a nice beach where the swimming appeared safe and and a nice walk along the rocks around the cove. Not stunning like Popohaku or Halawa, but worth a look if you are in the... More

Not too many people visit Molokai.Local activist preserving fragile island from developers.For individual visitor who wants to relax,cook his own meal and walk 3 mile beach with few visitors,swim safely at the Dixie bay beach...you found a paradise. I am coming here for over 35 years..and feel home sick to come back.

This was a beautiful, small beach! It was a little crowded when we went (meaning there were maybe 10 other people there) but they took up all the shade!
