“Great for swimming and kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Great beach for kids and swimming. The beach is nice and long and the water is pretty calm due to an outlying reef. This beach is great for stand up paddle boarding and you can rent them from Hawaii Beach TIme (808-585-1474) located in front of the tennis courts. Public showers and washrooms as well as lots of free parking. Great place to bring bbq stuff or a picnic. Many people also get wedding photos taken here! It gets deep pretty fast so keep an extra close eye on younger ones.

“Busy, rocky beach.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Both times we visited this beach it was very busy. It is a very wide, long stretch of beach that does give you a lot of options to find a place but it's still crowded.

Parking was difficult to find after driving around for several minutes. The best parking was on the street along the beach. The parking lot was a nightmare.

The water is not crystal clear like other beaches I have been to and because of the coral it is difficult to walk right in to the water. It is a beautiful area and will provide a great place for pictures.

“There are better places...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

A homeless people hang out, sad but true. Also full of litter. Wasn't our idea of fun. It had been recommended to us as a place to go.

I would recommend the beaches down by the aquarium. The parks seemed much cleaner there. Also out side the Hilton Hawaiian village/fort DeRussy mid morning was good. Not too crowded.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Some tourists do not like to come here because the locals come here, and some homeless can be found here. We, however loved it. The water is amazing. There are areas to surf, paddle board, swim in crystal clear calm waters, or watch the surfers ride 15 foot waves yards away. Very large park with lots of clean restrooms, drinking water and fun polite people every where. The views change with each time you move around the park and they are all spectacular. The beach is outstanding as well. Highly recommend this place unless you are scared or don't like being around the very friendly local Hawaii folks

“Very pretty but small for my taste”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Love the ease of getting to from hotel
Lots of homeless people and somewhat hard to take walk at some points as they are blocking walkway. Can't even compare to wakaikai beach.
