Lots of fish if snorkeling and sea creatures sunning on the beach!

Clean and lots of fun, very safe for the family but still lots of sexy people too! Lots of green grass to lay on right before getting into the sand and ocean!

This is a lovely beach with nice palm trees, restrooms. You can snorkeling, there a plenty of beautiful fishes and there is a monk seal which is laying on the beach every afternoon :) Originally I went to the Poipu beach to see some turtles but unfortunately they were not there. Maybe there is more chance if the weather is... More

Despite how busy this beach was, it was one of our favorites. We'd mostly been on the north side up until this beach and we weren't used to all the sun!! Wear sunscreen! Especially if you are snorkeling. It wasn't "hot" so we didn't think much of it and spent the rest of the trip as KFC (Kauai fried chickens!).... More

We ended up here 3 times over 7 days because it's a nice place to swim, snorkling is fun and the south end of the island is almost always sunny when it's raining elsewhere. Lots of people, but not so many that you can't find a spot and really enjoy the water and the views. Tons of free parking. Food... More

Pick a seat, and seat along the beach and you are set! The beach is usually packed with people right before sunset. It is the place to be and the best place to watch the sun go down - the entire ocean and sky lights up and is so beautiful and magical. No matter what we are doing on the... More

This beach is very popular, and with good reason. It's a great snorkel spot, but also is easily accessible, has lots of sand, and bathrooms, changing rooms, showers and a lifeguard. The reef comes right up to the shore, so you have to very careful getting in. Use the many area at the far left, or the sandy portion where... More
