This was a nice clean beach. There’s beach chairs and umbrellas. Not great snorkelling though. At least on the day we were there.

What a cool beach! We were practically by ourselves and had a great walk along the beach and in the trees to the pillbox. The trails led us to a banyan tree that was back drop in movies like Pirates of the Caribbean and others.

We really enjoyed walking on this beach. We didn't see any turtles, but it was a great beach to walk on.

The first time we went by we didn't see any turtles, then the next time, there was a beautiful turtle on the beach. The area is beautiful, but parking is a premium.

This beach is right next to hotel and pretty uncrowded, the beach rents chairs, loungers, snorkeling gear. It is well protected so pretty nice for family as well.

We've come here twice (on two separate trips) and saw turtles each time. Come in the late morning or early afternoon for your best chance.

No, all beaches in Hawaii are public access. The Turtle Bay Resort has plenty of parking spot for beach goers.
