“Great place to watch sunset”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We decided to stop here towards the end of the day before heading to dinner. It’s a smaller beach, there were a lot of locals here, and lots of people snorkeling and surfing. We lucked out and were able to see a sea turtle lounging on the beach! The lifeguard said he does come out often to sunbathe. We stayed until sunset, it was pretty to watch from this beach.

“great park with baby beach”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We loved this beach although it is one of the busier ones! There is a big bay where lots of adults are boogie boarding and then a smaller cove where the rocks protect it which is great for small kids. There is a lifeguard which is great and a nice play structure for when the waves are too high or your kiddos are pooped from the water. Breneke's is across the street.

“One of my favorite beaches on Kauai”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

I have been going here for years and always make sure that much of my time is spent on this beautiful beach. The last few times I have been there, there has been a monk seal (on the endangered and protected list) basking on the beach, protected by a roped off area and someone to watch over it so no one disturbs it. The waters are perfect for swimming and snorkeling, and sea turtles often frequent the waters, as well. There is a large restroom facility and it's close to places where you can get something to eat and drink. Plenty of parking across the street and beautiful park are with picnic tables and covered pavilions for barbeque. Highly recommended!

“Great snorkel location”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

This is a lovely beach area. All the beaches in Hawaii are free, there is a good parking area across the street. the beach has good snorkeling. We enjoy the ability to go in and out of the water from a beach rather than a boat.
