Gorgeous quiet beach with some fun snorkeling on the north side. The tide pools on the north side have amazing starfish!

Great quiet beach that we visited several times on our trip. Only downside, tight parking on a residential lane, no restrooms or showers. Couple porta potties on site.
Low score = over development Higher score = beautification of the beach (alone) Such, such fond memories. OG family friends from Oahu (dad went to college in California in the early 1950’s with a good friend who was born/raised in Oahu) who was co-investors in a charming, low key, Hawaiian designed compound bungalow from the 1970s. Granted any development on the water is STILL considered UNFAIR and UNJUST to the true founders of the Hawaiian Islands. It was told to us very early on that the lands across from this Palauea Bay Beach were Hawaiian burial grounds….with an understanding nothing would ever be developed. Fast forward 10 years - my stomach! What happened?!?! Who allowed this? It’s a gross, pretentious, who has the BIG $$$ to get a slice of what was so natural and undeveloped and land of the forefathers. The beach - still beautiful, blue and amazing. Deep breaths, wonderful experience (minus the mansions). The vibe (as I said), pretentious, crowded with massive homes. We witnessed one resident yell (from one of the phat homes) to a local who was docking his boat (due to high winds) to move his vessel….what is going on here? We had a nice revisit and re-grounding, but hurts my heart of what the rich are doing to the islands.
