We went there twice on this trip. The sea was very rough the first time, and even rougher on the second visit. Tried snorkeling, but the sand was making the water murky and hard to see. Very little shade, take an umbrella.

The monk seal in this photo is for real.....the day we were there, there were two laying side by side. There are life guards close by and some shade and some grass....can be crowded but it is a beautiful place.

Enjoyed our visit! One of the few totally calm beaches in the area for young children. Yes, hard to find the first time, and parking in very limited on the residential street.

Baby Beach was recommended by Pastor Dain Spore from Kuaui Christian Fellowship Church who renewed our vows on the beautiful beach. I surprised my wife with Dain's help! The night was perfect as there was a rainbow in the sky as we pulled up to...More

We had wanted to block time to swim but each day was so very full of activities so we ended up driving by and stopping so we could show off the beach to the family. We will have to block time next trip to go...More
