A bright spot in the neighborhood. A play area for the kids, sandy beach, reefs right offshore that invite fishing and playing in the gentle surf, and plenty of trees that offer shade from the sun.

Parking is easy and plenty of room for picnic too. Very fun beach and bring your snorkel gear to explore the outstanding scenery under the surface. Don't tempt fate --- SPF 30 or higher.

Lots of big turtles that sometimes sun them selves on the rocks, sometimes the beach can be hard to walk on from the debris. There is a nice walking/biking trail along the beach. Hard to make a left hand turn out of the parking lot...More

I really wasn’t paying attention as I walked by the small park. It’s dog friendly. It is hard to bring your dog to Hawaii though. I’m assuming they were locals.
