Excellent Snorkeling! This beach is also called Canoe Beach. There is a large sandy area for swimming and to the left of the beach (if you are looking at the ocean), are rocks where turtles sun and swim. There is also a lifeguard there which is wonderful, given all the shark attacks this year at this part of the island. There are bathrooms, so you can change your clothes. Lots of parking nearby. We found shade too, however, be warned to ALWAYS wear shoes if you are on or near the lawn. The trees drop small branches with large thorns. Unfortunately, two of us stepped on these thorns before finding out. The beach itself isn't the best, but the snorkeling is amazing!! We saw Butterfly fish, Moorish Idol fish, Green Sea Turtles, Eels, Yellow Tang, Trumpet fish, just to name a few!

Quite a bit of parking - we found a spot right away. Plenty of room to practice social distancing. Sand, surf, great ocean views. Swings, etc. for kids. Clean-ish public restrooms, especially for a park. Close to stores; within walking distance.

There's free parking available and we walked over to the front of the mega hotels to sun bathe. The only drawback is the coral and rocks in the water which makes it difficult to enjoy. While hanging out on the sand we continually witnessed turtles in the water swimming by, at least they enjoyed a swim.

Our family group of six adults and two children drove up here from Kihei on a Sunday morning, expecting it to be rather congested, and were pleasantly surprised that we practically had the beach to ourselves. There is easy access from the highway, with lots of parking, the beach has lots of space with a nicely shaded grassy area, lots of picnic shelters and BBQ’s, lifeguards, washrooms and a beach shower. Snorkelling was good, the beach was sheltered from most of the waves, and, if you like, the waterline is firm sand and you can walk onto the adjacent Kaanapali Beach for as far as you might care to walk.
