Charley Young beach sculpyureCharley Young Beach is located at the northern tip of Kamaole 1 beach. The beach is named after the owner of the property leading to the beach. Charley would lay out a hose for beach goers to wash the sand from their feet and greet them to and from the beach.

The small beach is not great for snorkeling but does offer some at the north reef when water is calm. There are a lot of rocks at the shoreline, making entry tricky. Further south at Kamaole 1 is much better for swimming. Charley Young Beach is however one of prettiest spots on the island , and is a great spot for boogie boards, fishing and spectacular sunset photos.
