We went snorkeling here instead of Hanauma Bay due to the high levels of bacteria while visiting. I would highly recommend that you bring water shoes because of the rocks. Your feet will thank you later. Definitely worth hanging out and watching the sunset. I...More
This was a less crowded beach and we enjoyed our visits here. There was easy access to the beach from the parking lot, and there was more parking available. There was a shrimp truck across the street. We saw an amazing sunset through the clouds...More
Shark's Cove is awesome! Free parking, no admission. Bring your water shoes as it is rocky. Get in the water and don't worry about the rocks! Fish everywhere! We snorkeled in the area to the left of the bathrooms. The rocks create a kind of...More
An amazing place (very little parking on busy days...) where you can find huge landscapes of tidepools (sharp rocks and lots of urchins, so wear water shoes) full of marine life, including salamanders, urchins, puffer fish, angel fish, etc. You could easily spend an hour...More
Our 3rd trip to this beach, over 10 years...always a pleasure! Nice corals, once you go out towards the 'flat rocks' (and a blow hole!) about 75-100 yards from the sand line. Being aware of the tide and wave 'action' is absolutely necessary, as the...More
Sharks Cove is a great place to snorkel. It is very rocky, though, and a little challenging to climb down the sharp rocks to the water, but once you're there you will see a large variety of fish. The coral was not as beautiful as...More
Wow...an absolute must stop in Oahu if you enjoy snorkeling. TONS of coral and fish. When you enter, the left side is very protected and great for wading/small children. The water is calm but still tons to look at and an easy snorkel. Plenty of...More
Well, we went for a swim on the last day of the trip. Will recommend looking up the Bottle Jellyfish calendar so you can swim comfortably (although they aren't deadly like the Australian variety) without worry of being stung. Buy reef shoes, as there is...More

I know this late for your questions but I think they are really good ones so of course I think they should be addressed. As far as wave and water conditions they are calm though there are swells in November. There are several websites that address wave conditions. As for the name and whether it is safe for little ones, the name is nothing to worry about. There are no sharks. The water is very shallow, warm and sandy. We had the babies in the water at six months.
