Fantastic place to go to view turtles. There were 21 laying on the beach and they are roped off by a protection agency. Water looked rough but we didn't go it. Also a nice place to watch surfers.

Amazing for surfing. Can catch turtles on the beach sometimes. Nice views. Parking below can be hard depending on the time.

Its a beautiful area and even if you don't spend the day on the beach stop and enjoy the view. Also saw sea turtles.

From the lookout you can get a great scenic view of the beach and the surfers. Also, it is right at the beginning of the Road to Hana, so be sure not to miss it!

Great local beach for surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing. I'm past that, unfortunately, but there is a high bluff that is a great spot for watching or taking photographs.

Delayed answer. The surfing app question has been answered quite well. Surfers are there whenever the wind is blowing, which is all of the time. This is one of the VERY best wind surfing beaches in the world. The greatest... More
