We got here in the morning and rented paddle boards and kayaks. This was all doable until about 11:30 to 12 noon when the wind started to kick up and the waves became choppy. Do the SAP and snorkeling all before 11 am if you...More

Great place to swim and snorkel. Swim out further for the reef. Frequent turtle sitings and a great place to boost board. Close to one of my fav Lava Lava Beach club for food and drink.

This was a nice beach close to the condo. Not too crowded. There are much better beaches for snorkeling, but for a relaxing day at the beach, this is a good spot.

Great area near the Waikoloa Village. Scenic, quiet, no one bothers anyone, yet friendly when engaging when invoked.

Lovely calm beach, some snorkeling, not crowded. You can do SUP, kayak, water bikes or just chill in the pretty waters.

Beach was clean, seating was plentiful. If you come in near the Marriott entrance there are generally a lot of lounge chairs available on a first come first serve basis.
