“Paradise....what Hawaii is all about!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Beauty, Excitement, Fun, Cocktails, Surfing, Music, Sailing.....it's all you can imagine and more. Time flies when you are here. You wish you could stay forever....at least I did. You can sit and stare into the water or just watch people. You see everything. People come from around the world to experience this beach. Don't miss out!

“Pretty small beach, no wave action, and no sailboat, or other boat rental available.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The location is obviously good. But, there are much nicer beaches in Hawaii. The beach is actually very, very small. When you walk out into the surf, the bottom gets rocky right away.

“Calm waters for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is beautiful and lives up to the postcards. There was not any surf when we were there but the water was very clean and calm and great for families.

“Beautiful View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I love the view of Diamond Head from this beach, but must admit that I often go to other beaches via rental car, because I like to get away from the crowds.

“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

How do you visit this beach and not fall in love with it. No matter the number of people on the beach, the beach was all yours! Warm, inviting and incredibly beautiful.
