NOTE: Not good for kids or weak divers. There is one heck of a walk to the beach, through hard and soft sand. I ended up carrying my 11 yo's tank/BC. Feels like a mile, but probably more like 1/2 mile. A wagon would have helped, but with the soft sand it'll need big tires. Beautiful beach. Definitely a good one to bring non-divers to relax on the beach. The parking lot gets busy early. I'd recommend being in the parking lot by 10am to get a spot. I'd also recommend bringing a big cooler, umbrella, and beach towels to enjoy the beach after the dive, it is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, and big enough to have moderate privacy. Dive: Tons and tons of fish. Great variety, lost of stuff my son hadn't seen before. We entered on the right side close to the rock. It was pretty rough and the water had some strong surges, so made it tough for my son to enjoy. We also couldn't get close to the tip of the rock because of it. Nothing real exciting for me, surely not worth the hike from the parking lot. Maybe as a first dive with no surge then it would have been better. Tip: No showers or facilities so we stopped at makena landing on the way home to clean our gear.
