The water is so clear you can even see where the reef descends into the ocean deep. There are 1000s of fish to be seen even from the shore. Bring your own gear to truly enjoy this beach.

I am a total rookie at snorkeling, but this was one of the most phenomenal memories in my life. To the other rookie snorkelers-to-be watch where you're going. I sliced up my melly a smidge on some reef. I'd still highly recommend this to anyone!

While visiting the national park we saw the unbelievable Ofu beach and the even better coral reefs! Stayed at the great Vaoto lodge.

If I never snorkel again I will know that I have experienced one of the best. Beach, water and reef just pristine.

If you are looking for a secluded white sand beach with beautiful scenery, Ofu Beach is it! This is not a tourist destination, which makes it all the more special. The water holds a vast variety of fish and coral.

Some of the biggest brain coral I've seen, good colour, good diversity of fish though not the highest density I've seen. Aquamarine water, white sand that stretches for miles without another human being on it, green jungle that rises sharply above you. Coconuts you can...More

On the plus side, this beach is quite pretty, incredibly isolated and reportedly has superb snorkeling. On the minus side, the beach is for the most part very narrow: a dozen feet tops of sand, parts of the beach have rock mixed with sand, and...More
