We drove by this place heading up towards the tip if North Shore, and felt compelled to stop and check it out. This is a great little cove tucked in the the middle of a well known surfing destination. It seemed to be a great...More
This cove is a warm, calm section of the north shore, with beautiful sandy beaches. Though rocky to enter the cove, once in, it is shallow with plenty of fish to view while snorkeling. I'd recommend wearing water shoes as it is challenging to get...More
This is a shallow, very rocky cove for novice snorkelers. I walked around the corner to the deeper open-water cove, but I was barefoot and it was a painful experience. The water in the open water cove was very rough so I didn't stay in...More
Me and my partner Steve had a wonderful time here celebrating our wedding anniversary really great place with nice people
Even had a go at fishing Steve had one on the line bit lost it but lucky old me managed to catch one
We went snorkeling here instead of Hanauma Bay due to the high levels of bacteria while visiting. I would highly recommend that you bring water shoes because of the rocks. Your feet will thank you later. Definitely worth hanging out and watching the sunset. I...More
This was a less crowded beach and we enjoyed our visits here. There was easy access to the beach from the parking lot, and there was more parking available. There was a shrimp truck across the street. We saw an amazing sunset through the clouds...More
Shark's Cove is awesome! Free parking, no admission. Bring your water shoes as it is rocky. Get in the water and don't worry about the rocks! Fish everywhere! We snorkeled in the area to the left of the bathrooms. The rocks create a kind of...More
An amazing place (very little parking on busy days...) where you can find huge landscapes of tidepools (sharp rocks and lots of urchins, so wear water shoes) full of marine life, including salamanders, urchins, puffer fish, angel fish, etc. You could easily spend an hour...More
Our 3rd trip to this beach, over 10 years...always a pleasure! Nice corals, once you go out towards the 'flat rocks' (and a blow hole!) about 75-100 yards from the sand line. Being aware of the tide and wave 'action' is absolutely necessary, as the...More

I know this late for your questions but I think they are really good ones so of course I think they should be addressed. As far as wave and water conditions they are calm though there are swells in November. There are several websites that address wave conditions. As for the name and whether it is safe for little ones, the name is nothing to worry about. There are no sharks. The water is very shallow, warm and sandy. We had the babies in the water at six months.
