This spectacular beach was my favorite of our two week vacation, both for snorkeling and just relaxing. Lovely white sand entry to the water. Downed trees along the back of the beach make shady alcoves, almost little private pockets of beach, all day. Plenty of room out on the beach for sun-worshippers, though. About 30 yards out in the bay there is a lava pile, creating a circular coral reef area quite close in and very easy for the beginning snorkelers or the young. Both ends of the bay have coral reefs too, you can't go wrong here. We went back three times during the two weeks. We saw turtles twice. I cannot come up with anything to criticize about this beach. Not as long and broad as Hapuna or Mauna Kea, more intimate, but plenty big enough to have fun in and out of the water. Bathrooms are typical beach bathrooms, there is an outdoor shower. Small parking lot, though. We were there before 11a all three days, and there was plenty of room, but by the time we left cars were waiting for others to leave. Small fee for non-residents to park. If you like beaches, this one is a must-go.
