Great beach and good snorkelling! 2step might be a little better but if your staying up north this is much closer.

This wasn't the best snorkeling on the island (for us, that was 2 Step Beach), but the snorkeling was still nice and the convenient location, scenic sandy beach and plentiful shade make Beach 69 a great package. I can see how it would feel crowded easily, since it's not a huge beach.

This is one of our favorite beaches, because it has it all, white sand, great swimming and even some great snorkeling if you get there early in the morning before the waves pick up. Easy parking, restrooms, and showers. Over the years has gotten much more attention and is very crowded on weekend with tourists and locals.

Great beach! It was our favorite of the Big Island. Perfect for just relaxing on the beach or snorkeling.

I read about this beach online and the concierge at the Fairmont recommended it. It offered some of the nicest snorkeling we've ever seen (2 adults, 2 kids). Slightly difficult to find, it's a huge coral reef with tons of colorful fish. Great for kids. The two sides of the beach offer totally different snorkeling experiences, so try both.
