A decent size beach and grass with shade trees and lifeguard. Good parking. There is plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the view. The sand is nice and of course there are chickens. Easy access with bathrooms too

Very nice park and beach area. Picnic tables and restrooms available. But, very busy and crowded. We came at the end of November. I can't imagine what this beach is like in peak season. We saw a monk seal sunbathing on the beach, which was cool. Fish were no where to be seen for snorkeling. Maybe it's different in the... More

This beach is on the dry side, so ifs raining elsewhere it would likely NOT be raining here. Great spot for families and older folks with the varieties of places to sit or go into the water.

Beautiful beach with 2 bays for swimming, surrounded by big grassy park with picnic tables. You can often see turtles near the rocks fringing the park. Have also seen big turtles as well as monk seals sleeping on the sand in the early morning.

Its one of the best beach park on the south for long rest and relax. Safe in all seasons, restrooms, baywatch. We have been there 2 times and always we saw big turtles and seal.

Easy to get to. Was hoping to snorkel but was too wavy for me. Maybe it's because I'm used to Maui's beaches which are generally calm in the mornings offering a better view underwater. Perhaps November is not the best time for this activity in Kauai.

All the public beeches are nice. But this one has a protected area to snorkel. Lot's of places to sit in the shade if you need it. And after dusk the turtles come in to shore to rest right on the beech. Huge sea turtles.
