“great waves for boogie boarding”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

This was my older kids fav beach for boogie boarding! There is a lifeguard that is wonderful and watching out for every little thing going on. This is a beautiful white sand turquoise water beach. The view is stunning. The snorkeling here is not very good because the surf is pretty strong, but some were going out to the rocks. The beach is pretty small and crowded, but was worth the fight for the kids to get to play in the surf protected by the lifeguards!

“Nice beach”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Great beach for boogie boarding and relaxing. Parking lot and street can get very crowded. It can be a little rough for small children, but ours still enjoyed playing in the sand. There is a bathroom and shower to rinse off at.

“Great, little beach--excellent body surfing and boogie boarding.”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

The beach isn't very big and a little crowded. Yet, it is a great spot for body surfing and boogie boarding.

“Not your best choice. Really just a swimming hole with parking and showers.”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Good for a dip and maybe a wave or two if it is not crowded. If you don't know the surf stay on shore unless the guards are on duty. Rocks can get ya. You can get out easily for a swim off the coast though so jump in and take a dip. the local kids jet around on boogies so watch out... It is fun in any case for a get wet experience.

“loved it!!! Fun!!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Had a bunch of fun here in the waves! Brought our noodles which made it easier to float out past the waves. We also snorkeled on the right side in front of the condos. It was pretty good snorkeling too. Actually was better than Kanaluu'u.....more fish and water was less murkey. Nobody bothered our stuff on the beach while we were in the water and parking wasn't hard to find.
