This is another beautiful Hawaiian beach with the added chance of seeing green sea turtles in the waves and on the beach if you are lucky! The day we went, we were incredibly lucky as there were so many in the waves. The waves wash...More

Family-friendly slightly rocky semi-sheltered shore that permits fun skin diving and snorkeling adventures: plenty of fish to see, and if you're lucky you'll spot a sea turtle or two as well!

Ever dreamed of swimming with sea turtles? This days has come! Don't forget to bring your snorkeling gears, the best spot to swim with them is starting from the lifeguards observation deck. Then follow them swimming along the shore.

Parking is tough so be patient. We saw turtles waiting for waves to get them on the beach. Snorkeling was so-so; the turtle does not come to the snorkeling area. Beach was busy and not much shade. No wash off area either so be aware....More

Everyday we stopped by or spent time on this beach. The views as well as the turtles were amazing. The beach is rocky, and parking can be difficult. Well worth a visit.

We went on a day tour that included this beach. We found it easier then having to hire a car and pay for parking.

Yes, they only ask that you observe at a comfortable distance and do not impede their direction. Enjoy, it was a very memorable experience.
