As the name would imply the beach is rather small located within a bay. Some people were snorkelling at the time of our visit. The waters were relatively shallow and in part protected from the otherwise crashing waves by the boulders.

The Baby beach is a great place to take any swimmers that just want to get wet, not swim. It is a very shallow area, about knee deep, protected from the ocean with rocks the ebb and flow are slight.

Small beach with a protected area for little ones. Not good for swimming due to rocks but perfect for sunning. Perfect shallow areas for babies or just cooling off. Limited parking.

This is a really good place even for the smallest kids. They called it a pond, but it is a protected part of a beach with shallow water without waves. Good even for 3 years old toplay.

The park has restrooms and picnic pavilions as well as free parking, but the beach is overcrowded. There are too many rocks -- not uncommon in Hawaii -- but certainly not conducive for a good beach experience. A small baby/toddler area is great for small...More
