The main beach on the east side of the island - a strand of white sand with a protected lagoon. Safe swimming for children when water is calm. Popular fishing & snorkel spot. Nearby Rocky Point is a surfing site.

Halawa Bay - a gently arching haven. Great for sunbathing and picnics. Good fishing. Not good for swimming - the water is usually murky and hazardous with currents and high surf all year round. Popular surfing spot.
