Great beach to hang out and snorkel a little! Visibility isn’t amazing but we saw plenty of beautiful fish, reef and turtles! Careful with the waves as they tend to pull you into the rocks. We went around noon and there were plenty of parking...More

Snorkeling is awesome here. One of my all time favorites to dive/snorkel. Plenty of fish and turtles. The coral is bright with color. The best place to snorkel is to the right as you come onto the beach. Go in the morning... the water is...More

Dude. The snorkeling here is like being in a nature documentary. Go in the beach and then swim over toward the rocks on the side - it's a CORAL REEF, and an amazing one. I saw so much life here. If you have only one...More

Oh man, I almost don't want to spill the beans. This place was far superior than the others I went to (snorkeling at Kapalua Bay and diving at inner Molokini and some wreck about 60 ft deep). The reef is still beautiful, and we saw...More

Not to big, not to small, just the right size beach for sun, surf, snorkeling, boogie boarding, or just relaxing on the beach, it’s got it all and permanent restrooms

We sat in the shade of some trees on the left side of the beach - it was a short walk from the Marriott. Not too crowded - loved it!

Great beach for families. Water is relatively calm so good for families to play in. Snorkeling is great right off the beach, good variety of fish and chance to see turtles. Clean washrooms and showers.

Yes, excellent here. The parking lot fills up early so it can be impossible to park at times. Usually good if you're there before 9 AM, after that, it's tough and can be problematic. This place has best snorkeling, go early... More

Didn't see any topless women there and don't know what the state laws are. Why not try it as you can always put a top on. Remember you only live once!
