Close to town with lots of space and shade. There are protected pools with big surf just outside them. So you can have a safe dip while looking out at the big waves. Lots of grass for the kids to play on. Quite nice.

We were staying at Arnott's Lodge for a few days, which is just a 5 minute walk away from this beautiful beach park. Although there is no sand, this is a beautiful area for snorkelling, swimming and picnicking. The water is very cold first thing in the morning, but you get used to it. You are then rewarded with seeing... More

Such a beautiful place with multiple pools of COLD, brackish water. Shallow areas for the younger kids and deeper areas for the older kids. Spots where one can jump from the rocks, but please, always jump with caution and check water depth before leaping. Enjoy.

This park is less than a mile from the pier and it has a beautiful waterfront area. The beach is rocky with black volcanic rock and white coral scattered about,... More

Lovely place to walk, calm, locals paddle in kayaks and paddle board. Continue to the bay, pass hotels, deli, places to eat; see Japanese garden on your left.

A small park that is a good jump off spot for surfers, but not a beach. The park fills up with a lot of "locals", if you get what I mean. Not always the friendliest environment. Common place for picnics and family get togethers, but I wouldn't recommend for any kind of relaxing. Mostly for surfers and snorkeling, not a... More
