Prime location for great time in the water and taking a break between snorkels. The beach was great and the water was better. This is a must do for those looking for beautiful underwater views.

Looking for beautiful fish, invertebrates and a colorful ocean adventure? Look no further. Go early or at least before the tide turns. Parking can be a little crazy, but be patient, you'll find something. Wear reef walkers or teva's. It is rocky, but that's why...More

This beach has a steep terrain and a lot of rocks at the water's edge. Has a nice character - is small and unique. Perhaps not best for young children playing in the surf.

There was a big write up on this spot while we were here. We drove all the way to the north shore to find a bunch or rocks. Yes there are fish, but really hard to snorkel there. Reminded me of the big island.

Took the kids here on a rough weather day (wind) so they could swim and snorkel. It is very protected from the surf so a great little spot to look through the tidepools and see the bigger fish in the larger lagoon area.

This is a great beach for surfers! I have seen some monster waves there. The sand and the water is amazing but not sure how you could actually swim there. We enjoyed the waves and the sand and relaxed while looking for shells. :)

The snorkelling here is fantastic. You can hire gear right across the road - including umbrellas ect. When finished make sure you check out the many food trucks - walk around, as there are more at the back and sides that you may not see...More

Our family couldn't have had more fun snorkling and playing in the water here last week. We had 2 kids who had never snorkled before this vacation with us and it was great for them, but also really fun for people who are more experienced,...More
