This quiet beach is located just south of the hotel resorts and offers plenty of opportunities for water sports thanks to its canoe clubhouse and paddleboard rentals. Calmer waters also make it a great destination for snorkeling and swimming. Many tropical fish and marine life inhabit the area, including hanu (sea turtles). Hanakaoo Park is also a picturesque backdrop for relaxing on the beach or taking sunset photos.
