04/05/2009 - This was my second trip to Kauai in the past 5 years. Both trips involved at least 5 snorkeling beaches. I tried Lawai Beach on both trips and it was one of the top snorkeling spots both times. Plenty of fish to see, clear water, easy entry, turtles near the beach, low surf, nice parking and facilities. For snorkelers, I would recommend this beach any time you are in Kauai.
