    Not much sand. Mostly rocky. Secluded and shady. Head a little bit left as you enter and you'll get a little bit of a beach.

    Small beach. Very secluded, but sand is really rocky.

    Quiet and secluded beach great for snorkeling even though the water can get a little rough at times.

    Must see - few miles north of Waikoloa ... a real nice sandy beach with some basic snorkeling. Lots of shade for us mainlanders. Recently improved with rinse off showers. Road is narrow and good.

    Beautiful, free snorkeling (bring your own gear) when ocean is calm. Not as clear when ocean is rough...

    Best snorkeling is where the reef builds up around the rocks. From the main lot, walk to the beach then left & left some more. Look for a large formation, set your gear down, and enjoy.

    Bathrooms are never in working order and the portos are always a little rough. Hop over to Hapuna for facilities, but beach 69 is way nicer!!

    Amazing snorkeling - thousands of fish and some turtles too! Great shady spots on the beach too. Awesome.

    One of our favorite beaches, beautiful snorkling on the north-end of the beach. Can be a nice surf-spot when the surf is up.
