“see it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

in the vicinity of Bellows Field Beach Park. Bellows has a more awesome and peaceful vista, but this is a lovely place to hang out too.

“Very beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Somewhat secluded and less traveled. The drive to this side of the island is also some of the most scenic of the island.. Waves were just right for boogie boards. On some visits to this beach over the years ...there can be seaweed in the surf ...which sort of ruins the experience. However, if not present....very enjoyable and picturesque.

“Breathtaking park with great beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Just a beautiful place with whales in winter, great surf but can be dangerous and the lifeguards are very mindful of those who may be too inexperienced for the surf.

“One of my favorite spots”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

You can relax on the beach or sit and chill on the rocks. It is right across the street from the sea life park and has a great view of the light house. If you are coming from the Waikiki area it is a great scenic drive.
