This is a cute little beach. Felt like a local family beach, not a tourist beach, which I liked. (There's a campground just back from the beach that looked crowded yet civilized, in a hippie-camper community sort of way.) Lots of kids frolicking in the surf, which was maybe three feet while we were there. Planned to spend a couple hours, wound up spending four hours, so it exceeded our expectations. Decent boogie boarding, but crowded in the waves at the beach. North side of the beach had more rocks in the surf, and therefore fewer boarders. Snorkeling visibility was ok, once you got out past the surf, but not many fish to see. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a slightly funky beach experience: reminded me a bit of Santa Cruz, CA.

Decent black sand beach. Quaint size and not too busy. Some locals and some tourists. Camp site at one end. If you are staying close and don't want to drive to the nice beaches in the North, then worth a day.

A lot to see i.e. campers, nudist, people that actually live there. Its a long windy road to get down there and is really only one way but i nice little place usually only locals know about

Decent beach. Nice folks that run the camp ground, which is a non-for-profit. Definitely Hawaiian style. :-)

We stayed at this camping for 5 days in may 2011. The weather was very nice, the beach was clean as well as the showers (solar heated water), restrooms were average. Very affordable and not crowded. We get to swim very close to the dolphins a couple of times. There is a vending shop with some snacks and snorkeling items for rent. This is probably not for the pickiest people but to us it was an affordable way to travel and know the island.We will definitely will go back.
