Baby Beach

Baby Beach is a small cove protected by the reef fronting the quaint residential neighborhood between Whalers Cove and Kuhio Shores. It is a special and secluded place on the south side where local residents (and visitors in the know) bring their keiki (toddlers) to play in the ocean and to learn how to swim for the first time. The water is only a couple of feet deep in a high tide with gentle waves that roll onto shore. It is usually sand bottom at the shore break towards the right of the beach when you are facing the ocean. It is much rockier to the left. The beach access is a short flight of stairs located between two beach homes (#5142 and #5152 Hoona Road). Baby Beach is perfect for young kids to run around and to explore the rock pools when the tide is low. This is also a cute spot to teach your toddler to surf by pushing them in onto the sand on a soft foam board! It’s where our kids first learned to stand and balance on a board. Baby Beach is a secluded spot to drink your morning coffee or to hang out at sunset for a last swim for the kiddos before dark. Parking is limited on the street so throw some towels and beach toys and a blanket into a backpack, grab your cooler and a beach umbrella and take a short stroll to Baby Beach! It takes less than 10 minutes to walk there with kids in tow from Whalers Cove or Kuhio Shores vacation condos.
