We took our friends who were beginner snorkelers and they saw all kinds of fish and turtles that came right up to them. There are showers and places to change out of wet clothes. Food trucks and shave ice.

We parked at the end of the marina. It is a short walk to the beach where the turtles are. On that trail is a fork, take the left one.
