Compared to other Kaua'I beaches, this one is much less busy and used by more locals. You will see net fisherman and dogs, even though they aren't allowed. The ease of entry was great. But it was very shallow for a long time until you exit the fringing reef, so protect your skin with an exposure suit. The near shore reef was only in okay condition, and the were a variety of fish, but not in huge numbers. Saw octopus, sergeant majors, puffer, etc.
