We ended up here 3 times over 7 days because it's a nice place to swim, snorkling is fun and the south end of the island is almost always sunny when it's raining elsewhere. Lots of people, but not so many that you can't find a spot and really enjoy the water and the views. Tons of free parking. Food... More

Pick a seat, and seat along the beach and you are set! The beach is usually packed with people right before sunset. It is the place to be and the best place to watch the sun go down - the entire ocean and sky lights up and is so beautiful and magical. No matter what we are doing on the... More

This beach is very popular, and with good reason. It's a great snorkel spot, but also is easily accessible, has lots of sand, and bathrooms, changing rooms, showers and a lifeguard. The reef comes right up to the shore, so you have to very careful getting in. Use the many area at the far left, or the sandy portion where... More

A decent size beach and grass with shade trees and lifeguard. Good parking. There is plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the view. The sand is nice and of course there are chickens. Easy access with bathrooms too

Very nice park and beach area. Picnic tables and restrooms available. But, very busy and crowded. We came at the end of November. I can't imagine what this beach is like in peak season. We saw a monk seal sunbathing on the beach, which was cool. Fish were no where to be seen for snorkeling. Maybe it's different in the... More

This beach is on the dry side, so ifs raining elsewhere it would likely NOT be raining here. Great spot for families and older folks with the varieties of places to sit or go into the water. Lots of parking but this is a very busy Beach with a lifeguard on site. We want to bring the grandkids here for... More
