We enjoyed walking on this beach. It was pretty. Mostly just a short stop after the canyon since the currents were pretty strong that day.

We're glad we found this beach during our Kauai trip. It is not crowded, the sand is nice, and the beach catered to the different tastes in activity for our group. The beach is calm (went during Dec) for novice snorkelers and offered diverse marine...More

Off the beaten path- less touristy than other beaches. Safe swimming space for kids, especially if they are new to snorkeling. Lifeguards galore. A sea turtle was sun bathing near us. Spent a couple of hours there, just taking in the calm.

Nice hidden beach off the main road with plenty of easy access parking. Plenty of tide pools to explore and snorkel

I wouldn't waste my time at this park. Yes is has public restrooms, and camping is allowed, but it looked more like some folks are living there rather than just camping. There are a ton of wild chickens, so be prepared to listen to them...More
