We went on a Friday morning but there were no turtles. We did like how quiet the beach was. It was tucked away and there were a few families but it wasn’t bad. It was quiet enough for my family to hang and relax on...More

We walked over hoping to see some turtles, but this is a small lagoon with not much going on if turtles are not in the area. I was disappointed in the snorkeling here and did not feel like I needed to return.

If you ever wanted to see sea turtles this is where you come. There are people, but that to be exepcted. ring your own swim wear and park a little after the signs for the cove, the turtles are all over the place.

Lots of “groups” visiting a making the visit a little uncomfortable. If your visiting as a small group or only 1, a little awkward.

It's a beautiful beach for snorkel for sure,you can see many fish or turtles,even urchin. The most difficult to visit this is the parking area only has 12 space for each car,which means you have to come early (before 9AM)or just wait for long long...More

It's one of the places on the island that the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles frequent. Wade out in the waist-high waters (excellent spot for the little ones) and stand still -- and they just might come up to say hello. I would give it 5...More

I stayed at Aulani and walked next door to Paradise cove beach. It's a great place for snorkeling as the water is really clear and there are sea turtles to view. The sand is a little rocky, so if your feet is sensitive, you may...More

Beautiful lagoon and a great place to snorkel and see fish and if you’re lucky you’ll also see the sea turtle! Limited parking that’s the only negative.

Paradise Cove Beach was beautiful. I'm sorry but it's Hawaii, it was all beautiful. There was a lot of people there the day we visited. I prefer a quiet area at the beach.
