I would say this was not my favorite. VERY crowded. Some fellow tourists were very rude to others. The swimming was a bit rough for my teens and they are good swimmers. Folks were very disrespectful to the marine life and the NOA people working....More

Great beach! Very clean, well kept and great waves. If you go around the corner to the north by the Marriott property there seem to be some rocks. Beautiful!

Lovely beach with incredibly multi blue waves. Great place for family and friends. We even got to see a sleeping monk seal on the beach.

It would be good for beginner snorkeling! It is protected by a reef so water is not rough. You need to be aware that in some spots the distance between rock and water surface is very very shallow and you need to be careful... More
