This is a beautiful beach! It is located at the Mile 20 road mark. We brought snorkel gear and had a fantastic afternoon. The water is very shallow for about 30 yards (or more?) offshore. We had no problem with current or waves. The coral is in great condition and there were tons of fish. You can sun yourself on the beach and look across the channel to the hills of Maui. A great way to spend a day!

We had a great time at this beach. It was calm enough to wade in and we saw several locals out fishing. We enjoyed our lunch from Goods and Grinds with a view of the beach. This beach also just happened to be right down the road from where we were staying. Perfect!

At mile 20, this is a popular beach with the locals. we stayed at mile 19, so the beach was close. There is plenty of sand and a decent sized beach. The wind and surf were up so the wave watching was fun. Of course, I could stare at the ocean for hours. Probably the nicest beach on the east side.

Beautiful beach but not good for walking unless you have on shoes because of the lava rocks. Located on the east end of Molokai.
