  • Of course the beach is great, that is why you come here. But note that while Waikiki is located on the East side of the island, you can get good views of the sunsets as well. Spectacular.

  • We visited Maui and Kauai but by far this was my girls favorite! Love this beach… let’s be real just stay here and enjoy the sand, sun and beach!
  • Spectacular beach. When we were there the waves were really tame. Curious what others notice. It's crowded. The sand is perfect. One of the things I look for in a beach is no or few rocks in the water at wading depth. This beach is great, at least the small section where we were. Almost no rocks to contend with while wading in.
