Beach is very gradual entry with no rocks that i saw, and therefore great for kids or folks trying to get in with snorkel gear for the first time. Very good coral at north end of beach. Fish density average according to one of us and good according to the other. The north end of the beach is quite sheltered from the wind, south is not.
We could not get in the parking lot last year but today (March monday) it was not full anytime I was up there from our 8:30 arrival to 1:30 departure.

Doing some self guided shore scuba dives?

Nice sandy beach entry, benches up near the gear drop off area that are set up for scuba divers.

Two outdoor showers to rinse your gear off after the dive.

Shallow reef with little surge or surf.

Great place to start your diving on Maui and shake the cobwebs off.

And the beach is nice, so if you have friends/family with you who are not diving, then they won't mind the wait here.

Parking can fill up fast.

Perfect beach to swim in, water is shallow for quite a ways out. Sand is soft, snorkeling is very good, scenery is beautiful. Another plus is there is ample parking which is rare in Maui.

This beach is a great little snorkel spot. We saw a variety of sealife here. No need to get a guided snorkel.. just grab your gear and hit this beach.
