    If you see a turtle or seal don't touch it and stay 10ft away from it or you'll be fined. Remember it's just trying to relax and get some sun same as you so give them some breathing space.

    Great for sunning or snorkeling. Wear watershoes as the beach is rocky in spots. Grab lunch at Breneckes deli conveniently located across the street from the beach park.

    This is a lively beach with good amenities. Local people having BBQ along with usual tourists, omnipresent chickens and occasional seal.

    Grassy spot leading up to the beach. I'd rather swim on another beach, but this isn't bad. Just too crowded!

    Nice gentle beach with good snorkeling and the Marriott outdoor bar right there. Seating, bathrooms, views, what could be better. Life is good!

    Cool sandbar and tide pools. Not great for swimming or snorkeling.

    During summer it's full of people, but it's good for surfing, snorkeling and has a nice beach park. Also a lot of good weather..

    Fantastic spot for the little ones, where the parents can sigh a little less due to the clear water, shallow depth and spacious sand area to play.

    Drive pass the map direction continuing along the coast and through the hotels, if, you're lucky a fellow Kauai'ian is just leaving.

    Popular and populated for Kauai. Nice beach to swim, snorkel or surf. Very beginner for snorkeling, but you do get to see a variety.

    Surf can get rough, but go to the right of the split, out about 150 yards, then straight out into the Pacific for AMAZING reef snorkeling.

    It's a great place to see Hawaiian Monk Seals sunning on the beach.. Its not unusual to see one a day.

    There's a little sandbar right off of the beach, a perfect place to catch the sunset. Just be careful of the little waves that might get you more wet than expected!

    NEW YEARS EVE FESTIVAL was hectic for our wanting to wonder 16 month old. Long lines expensive food. Better to eat beforehand then see fireworks. Crazy parking on HWY,, super crowded, good vibes.

    Great place for snorkeling. As you look out toward the ocean, go on the right of the rocks, not the left. You'll see more fish there.
  • Don (wilytongue) S.
    Bring a drink relax and enjoy the snorkeling and know on New Year's Eve they have fireworks!
