Picturesqu Beach

This beach is very ideal for sunbathing, surfing and such other pleasurable activities. One should never miss this beach while holidaying at Hawaii.

Beautiful white sand beach with warm aquamarine,clear water. Plenty of shade, if you want it. $he day we were there, the lifeguards warned everyone about the shore break and undertow. Scared me, so I didn't go in too far. Was told later that it can be a treacherous beach. I would certainly go back, but I'm not an ocean swimmer... More

Sandy white beach great for sun bathing or wading in the water. Parking is free and just across from the beach.

Clear, clean, beautiful warm water, don't know what else you can ask for in a beach. I liked that the showers to rinse off had warm water as well, unlike the other beaches where the water seemed ice cold.

While other beaches are good for snorkeling this one has a full sandy surface - clear as day water - showers - park across the street/easier than lot by beach - turtles/lifeguard - get there early -pack a lunch.

Nice beach but it does have an undertow that can be challenging when the tide is high and the swell is strong.

This was such a nice beach. My family is from Trinidad and I have been there many times but we do not have beeches like this. Clean. Clear. Beautiful. You'll love it.

Very nice beach, as close to Waikikiki as you could get on the big island probably, but we were lead to believe the sand was really white, but it seem d just like traditional sand.

The first beach we stopped at. Friendly locals helped us master the waves. Best boogie boarding waves I've experienced. Also, the body surfing here is fantastic.
