We were tired and wanted a good dinner on the beach. This was our fifth visit to Kauai and never ate here before. The staff was very pleasant and we were seated quickly. Drinks were good and food was equally as nice.

There are almost as many turtles in the water as boogie boarders! And the nice thing is that nobody messes with them. Just a lot of people pointing and obviously very excited and surprised to see so many turtles in the shallow water and in the cresting waves.. Big, small and everywhere but mainly to the left when facing the... More

This beach which is just on the other side of the green space from Poipu beach, is completely exposed to the ocean, without a barrier, so it makes it better for surf, but definitely more rough than Poipu. Poipu is the nicer of the 2 areas in my opinion, especially for the kiddos.

Love this beach. Great snorkeling when the water is calm. I like that there is restrooms and a great lunch/ bar place across the street. Nice swim spots and plenty of great sand for the kids and your gear. Places to rinse off and picnic tables too

OK, so let me start off by saying that this is not for anyone but good to excellent swimmers who are experienced. Entered on the middle of the beach, a nice sandy area, and headed to the left along the coast. Very nice fingers going out into the water to peruse, excellent sea life. Ran across a couple of turtles,... More

Moderate level of medium to large fish close to shore. Very few small fish. Some coral but lacks color. Very well protected from waves but there is still a swell. Very difficult to get into the water due to rough volcanic rocks at shoreline

And your water socks. Once you get out from the beach, Hawaii's volcanic shore makes walking a bit rocky for tenderfeet. But there is a protected area for the children as well as a slightly less protected area for snorkeling. The large park and nearby parking were overloaded on weekends, but lightly used during the week. Shelters and restrooms nearby,... More

This beach is perfect for boogie boarding (not for anything else though). My teenager, who boogie boards off San Diego all the time, was thoroughly impressed. He spent hours! And also got to ride the waves next to sea turtles. Awesome day.

Brilliant location across from the Beach Park, visited just outside of happy hour , after a short wait we were seated as the restaurant was very busy with happy hour customers finishing up. Food average and slightly overpriced, possibly due to it's location and no immediate competition, Staff very friendly and attentive , decent selection of beer and wine. You... More
