Both days that we visited this beach there were endangered monk seals hanging out on the beach. We spent our entire last day in Kauai at this beach. Even though it was busy it did not feel too crowded. It was a great way to relax and enjoy our final day. We were fortunate to have 2 monk seals hang out on the beach for most of the day and we also had at least 3 turtles come ashore throughout the day. The snorkelling is good we swam with turtles each time we snorkelled. Lots of parking close by and another beach within walking distance that is good for bogie boarding.
