  • Nice beach for sunbathing or stroll along after dinner. The weather in Hawaii is so pleasant year round, so a visit to the beaches is a must. The beaches are clean with lots of trees and coconut...

  • nice, must see, but a bit to crowded ,for my taste.
  • Pretty much crowded place. The sky is blue. The ocean is warm. What else do you need when you want to escape your frosty and snowy place?
