Lawaʻi (Beach House) Beach information
Lonely Planet review
For such a tiny beach, this snorkeling and surfing spot gets a lot of attention. Located almost adjacent to Lawaʻi Rd (beside the iconic Beach House Restaurant, hence the alternate name), it’s in plain view of passersby and not especially scenic or sandy. But during calm surf, the waters are rich snorkel turf, especially for novices, who’ll probably meet tangs, parrot fish, needle fish, eels and perhaps turtles, all within a depth of 3ft to 15ft. Expect a crowd of vacationers from the nearby timeshares and condos. The grassy bank by the restaurant makes a fine viewing spot for surfers and sunsets; don’t miss the short walk along the seawall. Restrooms, a shower and public parking lie across the street.
