Enclosed bay is great to stop and sit at. The waves along most of the north shore are treacherous. Magnificent to visit but not swim in.

Enjoyed watching people jump off large rock/cliff. Beach has great views on all sides. Parking is tough. We parked across road for $5. If you have kids, traffic is bad so be careful. Snorkeling is average.

Absolutely beautiful beach.... no other words. Parking can be challenging but worth the wait. Gentle lapping waves on the beach with aqua marine blue and green water.... warm and inviting. Huge sea turtles swimming in the bay. Favourite swimming spot

The views were amazing.... Beach and rocky shoreline all withing a few miles... The beach was less packed than Waikiki and there seemed to be more families.... We were just riding around the island and added it as a stop.... glad we did.

Good waves, lots of sun and sand! Jumping off the rock was an experience I'll never forget!! Parking is difficult to come by, so if visiting--- come early!

Visited here several times for the cliff jumping. Fairly easy and good for almost any age. Hardest part is swimming back to shore! Nice beach, has outdoor showers and restrooms. Although restrooms aren't the cleanest, they serve the purpose.

If you want to try the waves or Pinballs it is mandatory to say that it is scary!! But on the other hand it is a awesomw place to hang out with the family at the beach!
