This beach is a little hard to find, and is very small, BUT is perfect for families with small children! BABY beach is true to its name!

Beautiful hidden gem! We didn’t see any monk seals, but loved all the beautiful fish we saw when snorkeling and exploring the rocks. Take your time and just keep looking to find more and more neat creatures there. Very small and quiet beach!

A great beach for families, no crazy waves. A turtle swam right up to me here. Most memorable beach on the island!

Really rocky in the water. Mellow waves. Only sandy part inside the water is within the first two feet. Otherwise, too rocky to swim or play in and not enough waves for basic boogie boarding.

Stayed in a home right there. It is a beautiful place to watch the sun set and to see the turtles who swim up and sleep. Beautiful and lots of fish.

Our concierge mentioned this as his favorite snorkeling spot, and we can see why: Within moments of arriving, we were face-to-face (though we stayed back a respectful distance) with a giant sea turtle who was feeding very close to shore. The beach is protected by...More

Parking can be a little tricky if you do not get here early enough. Plenty of beach space to lay out, build sand castles, or go snorkeling.

Great beach four younger kids with calmer water. This was the only beach that we saw Hawaiian monk seals. Has lifeguards, showers and bathrooms. Can be very crowded at times.

No. It's a quiet little beach for families and young kiddies....saw turtles and seals there too. Good for snorkeling.

Not many spots to park alongside the road from Baby Beach. Across the street is a large resort, I think they may allow beach users to park there.
