Not the nicest place, but we stopped for a sunset after our charter boat trip. Glad we did... incredible setting to watch the sun disappear into the water next to the mountains. Our youngest enjoyed summing in the calm waters while the rest of us...More

Nice out of the way beach with nice waves and nice views of the ocean. Parking can be a problem but worth the visit

Really nice safe beach with restrooms, picnic tables, good amount of parking. Small inclosed swimming area great for kids and some snorkeling. Larger adjacent beach for water sports and better snorkeling.

If you have small kids this beach is great. They have cover picnic tables and bathrooms. Food truck is parked for food and drinks. It's a bay beach so not a lot of waves.

We visited this beach twice during our recent visit to Kauai. It's one of the best beaches on Kauai. Nice sand, small waves, an area for small children to play between a flat rock ledge and the beach, and a good place to view sunsets....More

The beach is nice and clean - rain is a rare appearance. The lagoon is good protected by a stone wall. But you will not find very much shadow, so take care of sun protection. Snorkeling is okay, some fish will be seen.

It wasn't crowded even though there was some kind of jr lifeguard event happening. Nice beach with fairly calm waters.

It was very windy the day of our visit; however, the beach drops down to the water providing some protection. The water was great for snorkeling and lounging in the water. Some shade is provided. Recommend this beach for a quiet day.

The speech was relatively easy to get to and had uncovered parking. Far-right or west side of the beach had a lifeguard. There was some Shelter From the surf at the edges and a rather generous crossword. Coral was not abundant but there were interesting...More
