“Surf's Up!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Although not ideal for swimming, we did enjoy watching the surfers and wake boarders. A beautiful spot with the point in the background. Take the short hike to the top and watch the brave people jump off!

“Becareful”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is a great beach to watch locals do what they do best, but stay out of their way unless you know how to surf or body surf. The waves are very ruff and big rocks lie under the surf, ouch!!

“Not great for families”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

The only reason to go to this beach is if you stay at the the Grand Hyatt. It is way to rough for kids under 10.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

This beach is amazing! Right at the end of a paved walkway that runs through the Hyatt and surrounding communities. Shade there in the afternoon and easy parking. Wonderful sea turtle watching too along the path about a half a mile away--just look near the rocks. Visibility is the best in the afternoon. I would not put kids in the water here, but if you are staying at the Hyatt there is a great salt water pool right next to the beach for the kids.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The was a lot of sand space and lots of surfers and boogie boarders on the beach. We enjoyed hanging out at the beach and climbing up to the bluff and on the trail.
