“safe swimming”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

A safe place to swim during the winter months on Kauai when the waves can be ferocious. There is a small tidal pool area for toddlers to swim. Smaller than pictures depict, its a busy place. There are nearby picnic tables and Brennecke's Grill across the street

“Great snorkelling and great location”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This beach was within walking distance of our rental and we went every other day. We saw whales and dolphins in the distance, sea turtles and monk seals up close and TONS of different fish/ocean life while snorkelling. The roosters/chickens run the upper part of the beach but the coast line sunsets are worth sticking around to see. Good advice though is to get there early - the beach is amazing but is overrun with people around noon and later.

“GREAT FOR EVERYONE! Especially for Jan-March”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We were vacationing Feb 5th-19th 2013 and actually spent most of our time at this beach. Boogie boarding, Turtles, Seals, and tropical fish for snorkeling. The snorkeling store across the street sells fish foods and it's amazing how fast they come swimming. BEWARE however sprinkle the food over the top of water because one of our fingers were nibbled on when they tried eating it out of package. It was one of the big white fish, they are a bit more intimidating.

5 star!! It's always sunny Jan - March on the South side of island

“Yes!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Kauai County has done a wonderful job maintaining the park. It gets better every year. Surf too high for snorkeling today but the suffers were kickin' it!
