This might be my favorite beach. Kid friendly, adult friendly, lots of wildlife to see. Pack your lunch and spend all day.

Took a walk over here along the beach and saw a green turtle ( honu) The water is very warm and perfect for swimming for all ages. There is a huge grassy lawn with picnic tables and restrooms. Great place to watch the sunset.
