Initially we stopped here as part of the road to Hana and were able to see the beautiful coast but we came back a second time in the evening to see turtles and were not disappointed. There were about 35 turtles on the beach. It...More
Having stopped by to visit this little beach in the past, we just thought we had seen sea turtles enjoying the sun. Uh, we were wrong. We pulled up and parked in the upper parking lot as the lower parking lot is very narrow and...More
I'll admit that I wanted to come back to Hawai'i so that I can see some turtles. Snorkel tours will take you to where turtles are but often you see few and far in between. Seeing them up close as possible is in fact possible....More
We visited her to watch surfers on our drive to Hana. It's a beautiful vista and the surfers are impressive to watch. There was a guy squeezing fresh sugar cane juice next to the parking lot which we enjoyed immensely. (Funny, his truck bed was...More

We came here to hang on the beach before shopping and dining in Paia. We saw several turtles on the beach - and a few make their way onto it while we were there. Also fun to watch the numerous surfers. There were lifeguards on...More

Delayed answer. The surfing app question has been answered quite well. Surfers are there whenever the wind is blowing, which is all of the time. This is one of the VERY best wind surfing beaches in the world. The greatest number of surfers will be found on the weekends, of course. Many live in Paia. I once met an Arab prince, complete with his body guards, while using the facilities there. He was there for the wind suring & was actually quite good. He spoke, dressed & smelled like most surfers.
