busy but awesome beach park. Tourists and locals. Different beaches make up this park, or are so nearby they seem to be a part of the park ( I wasn't quite sure where this park boundaries were!) Snorkeling, boogie boarding, some tide pools. Nearby restaurants...More

This is a swimming/surfing/ bathing beach right next to a park with picnic facilities and trees. One can bring blanket/towels and be on the beach or the grass. Across the street is Shave Ice and ice cream. In Hawaii, what more might you want?

We relaxed, we snorkeled, and we boogie boarded. There’s so much to do with teenagers on this beach (they didn’t even play on their phones) Clean, great waves, and we enjoyed watching the seals too

Great Location with a very nice beach. The waves were fairly small compared to the North shore which made it kid friendly. The Sheraton Kauai Resort which is right next to the beach has an outdoor bar and also a restaurant.

We walked from the Grand Hyatt & were greeted by 4 Monk seals frolicing in the sand & surf & very close by 3 GIANT turtles. Very cool. Washrooms under renovations.

This is a beach park you do not want to miss - it has sandy beach, nice swimming areas, showers, bathrooms, free parking, and seals. A nice place to swim and watch sunset. Do not miss this beach park!

This is one of the best snorkeling beaches in winter—lots of different types of fish in a sheltered location. You will probably also see seals or tortoises sunning themselves on the beach. Golden sand. Lots of parking. And ice cream across the street.

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
