“Our favorite beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2011

Snorkling is decent and super accessible, swam with a couple of sea turtles and even a seal that ventured into the cove!

“Good snorkeling, Lots of people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

This is a primary location on the south side of Kauai. They have showers, restrooms, good restaurants around the area (Brennecke's). Kauai is famous for roaming roosters and this beach had plenty of them. They are not aggressive and will keep their distance from you unless you feed them. We found it neat to hear roosters crowing on the beach. Lots of people watching!

“On the sunny dry side of Kauai -- best choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

A fine beach for couples, families & kids, It's well protected making it good for snorkelers. A large park beside that hosted a festival when I was there. After your sand-time, go to Brennecke's for a cold one and eats -- good menu and prices.

“Easiest snorkling adventure with great fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Very easy to snorkel, just park suit up go in the water. Fresh water showers, great grass park and very safe. Swim with some huge sea turtles and look at pretty fish. Some rocks to watch out for and coral, but not to bad. Perfect for children to see fish.

“Great snorkeling but too rocky for swimming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2011

Easy and free parking. Beautiful beach. Very crowded, obviously because it's a special place.
