First of all be careful here. The beach is beautiful and the surf is good but it can be dangerous. Do not let small children swim unattended here as there are strong rip currents. Great place to boggy board and body surf. There is ample...More

It was a great spot to stop and wet our feet on the sand edge. The waters were calm when we went but there were a couple surfers. We enjoyed our stop here, an unforgettable memory touching the Pacific Ocean.

Quieter than the downtown Honolulu beaches - this is a beauty. Definitely, take the time to spend some time here when you are in the Halona Blowhole area. The sand is fine and smooth, the breakwaters are tremendous and it is very secluded.
