Directions: Head northeast on HI-30 E, Turn left onto Napilihau St., Turn right onto Lower Honoapiilani Rd., turn left onto Napili Pl. .Parking also available on Hui dr. further north.

Parking: Park anywhere along Napili Pl.. and Hui Dr.. Head towards the beach and follow the path. as with most west beaches, parking can fill up quickly.

Where to snorkel: Entry is easy with lots of sand. Best snorkeling is on the left (south) side of the beach further out away from the beach (the north end can also be good). Visibility can be bad near shore, but clears as you swim further out.

What to look for: Many varieties of fish including Wrasse, Moorish Idol, Convicts and Turtles. Coral is not as pretty as other areas. There are some really nice tide pools at the south end of the beach.

Other Info: This is a good family beach for beginning snorkelers as the bay is well protected and easy swimming. During winter months the high surf makes this beach better for boogie boarding and not recommended for snorkeling.
