  • Bring some pizza down from Bianellis up at the Keauhou Shopping center for cheap eats and a great sunset.
  • This is a great snorkeling beach, crowded yes but so worth it. The water is calm making this location perfect for all ages. Many fish, urchins & sea turtles to be seen here. :)
  • LOVE snorkeling here..turtles are amazing!!
  • Decent, safe snorkeling to be had here. Come early to avoid crowds. Showers/bathrooms available.
  • Snorkeling here is like being in an aquarium. A must do for new and seasoned snorkelers alike!
  • Walk into the water in front of the lifeguard stand. Walking across the rocks is dangerous.
  • Watch out for the sea urchins :) and don't forget your gear if you want to see the turtles.
  • What a fun and friendly place. Hug the walls at the south end and follow around to find turtles hanging out away from the snorkelers.
  • snorking is magic
  • Don't let the crowded beach to discourage you. This is one of the best snorkeling spot I have been to. Just swim by the kids crowd and enjoy the wonderful tropical fish beyond them. Shallow and calm.
  • Take it easy, braddahs.
  • Bring your mask and snorkel and explore.
  • Read the sign near the ancient pool for some awesome history!
  • Not a white sand beach so bring water shoes to walk around and prevent cuts on your feet. Watch where you step. Things that look like rocks are actual living coral. Preserve this gorgeous place!
  • Great snorkeling
  • Lots of snorkeling here. Not a lot of sand in the summer but plenty of space to post up for a bit and enjoy the ocean.
  • Wow!!! Definitely an awesome snorkeling spot! Turtles are all around the bay. So beautiful
  • Easily accessible snorkeling spot in Kona, with clear water. Great for families, shallow with lots of fish. On the north side of the beach along the highway you'll find surf lessons and gear rentals.
  • Great place to snorkel - shallow coral all the way out a few hundred feet - and if you get lucky (and stick to the left side) you might see a sea turtle
  • Best snorkeling ever!
