We loved this beach. There was ample parking to the right at the self-parking area of the resort. Don’t let the resort scare you off as they have allocated a lot of parking for the public beach. The snorkelling here is accessible and not scary....More

This beach was on a protected cove, which provides for some snorkeling. Still, in winter, when the surf is higher in Hawaii, it's a bit too rough for novice snorkelers, but if you have some experience, it could provide a nice location even in the...More

Great Beach and atmosphere! It is not secluded like many others on the island but it is a beautiful resort both inside and out. There is plenty of parking and plenty to do as well. Staff is very friendly.

As a first time visitor, I was expecting to find some turtles. Unluckily, I didn't see much. I have to return here to find one :) The place is very cool complete with hotel with a view.

If you love just floating in the water or snorkeling without the worry of getting dumped. This is the place. The water was glorious - slight waves but no dumpers due to the reef that encloses it. There is a surf beach on the other...More
