This beach has it all! Come to paddle board, surf, sun bathe, swim, picnic, snorkel, read a book sitting under the shade of a palm on a beautiful lawn.. and there are public restrooms, fresh water showers, water fountains and plenty of parking for visitors. There is a restaurant across the street, too. So, I can spend the whole day... More

This beach is good for snorkeling, if you do not mind a hundred other people doing the same all around you. This beach is a nice beach, but the proximity to large hotels mean that it is always crowded with tourists. Sometimes it is hard to even find a decent spot to lay/sit on the beach.

Although we were staying in Kapaau, we came down to this beach twice as the snorkelling was good and the beach was calm. It was nice to see the pretty fish and there is shade to get out of the sun.

If you have kids yous will love this beach as part of it has a sea wall and creates a lagoon which is shallow and great to snorkel in. We saw a giant turtle and monk seals on the beach sunning themselves.

Small beach but lots of parking. Facilities, lifeguard, and outdoor shower. Beside the Sheraton Beach. Good for snorkeling. Small area. Very shallow (husband scratch his knee twice). But surprisingly lots to see. Saw 3 eels. 1 very large sea turtle. And lots of different colored fish. Also a beautiful spot for the sunset. Stopped by Maki Sushi twice and had... More

We took our 2 and 4 year old there. Super safe and fun. There were two huge sea turtles sleeping on the beach, so cool! Great spot for sure. Adults can snorkel a little right next door too.

Beautiful sunny beach on a south side of Kauai island. Great spot for snorkeling and relax. Monk seals are frequent guests on this beach, every time I went there I saw one or two each time

Great place to catch a sunset, especially if you need to be on that side of the island to catch a late flight. Lots of good restaurants in the area too.

Fun time at this beach, snorkeling, wading, laying in the sun. We saw whales a couple of different times. Smiling faces all around, cool beach.
