    Really great snorkeling!! Saw a number of sea turtles. And every fish on the Maui ocean chart. We even swam with a leopard moray! The water is clear, calm, and you can float easily. Be careful though, please don’t jump off the rock.

    Great snorkeling spot, calm waters, and cliff jumping, but very busy. Accessed it through the beach walk from near by resort. Nice to just float and watch the turtles trying to eat with the flow of the currents and the aha needlefish float at surface around us.

    Amazing PUBLIC beach. Parking is a nightmare though. We found it best to park in Whaler's Village and then spend $15 at one of the shops in the mall. Will save ya $3 compared to the $3 per 30 minutes rate and will cover you for 3 hours. Water is clear for snorkeling, various rentals at a shack by the Sheraton. Surf was surprisingly heavy close to the beach, but eased off the further out you got. Wonderful time.

    The snorkling was pretty good close to the black rock. Parking was easy at the Sheraton. We paid $1 with bar validation. They validated without a purchase.

    Really nice beach! I heard people were looking for good beaches and couldn’t find it. We got lucky that we rented place right across the street and it wasn’t a problem. There is some trees over there so you can stay in shade. Also you can do snorkeling 🤿 near the rocks and watch for fishes 🐠and turtles 🐢. There is light waves 🌊, kids can swim. Not the best place for sunrise because sun is going up on another side of a island. Sunset time after time is nice. So most of all this is good beach.
