  • This site is a nice bike ride from the hotel areas of Oahu. There is an admission fee park and to get to the bay area. The water is blue/green here and the sand looks like sugar. A really nice spot for a picnic.

  • Awesome snorkeling. My wife and I loved this place. The beach was amazing. The weather was great. The fish were really spectacular. So many species everywhere! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for something to do that’s different and loads of fun. Such natural beauty and charm. Thanks for a great time guys!

  • Beautiful beach. Great easy snorkeling. Guaranteed to see tons of fish up close. TAKE AN UMBRELLA! There’s close to no shelter from the sun. There are almost no waves and the water is very shallow near the sand so little kids can play relatively safely. Best to take a shuttle in as the parking lot fills up at 7am. There are tons of companies that will shuttle from all the hotels. There’s also shuttles at the strip mall if you drive and get stuck without a parking spot. Snorkel rentals are usually done through the shuttle companies if you don’t have your own gear. Once there you watch an 8 min mandatory video on preserving the reef and then have a steep walk down to the beach. It’s $2.50 round trip per person to take a little trailer ride down. IMO it’s worth it if you’re hauling stuff. If you don’t want it on the way down you’ll want it on the way back up 😀

  • The snorkeling here is amazing! Make sure you arrive before 7 to beat the crowds so you can get a parking spot. The fish here are so colorful! Just don't touch the coral.

  • Beautiful place. The show a video before you start your day at the beach. It’s amazing how they educate us about the importance of the reef preservation for future generations and how we can help. Love it.
