This beach is a great snorkeling beach on Oahu because of its clear blue water and large fish population. We easily counted over 30 species before losing count. Kahe Point is nicknamed Electric Beach due to the electric power plant located nearby. Clean warm water...More

Pretty good artificial reef over top of power plant exit pipes. Saw a lot of sea turtles here and tons of fish. Even saw spinner dolphins. It may sound strange considering it's across the street from a power plant but this was our favorite place...More

The day we went there was an under current that made it tough and my husband and daughter didn't even get in. My son and I enjoyed it, but it was a little rough getting back in. Nice area though

This beach has lots of potential for snorkeling, the water looked pretty clear the day we stopped by and there were quite a few snorklers out in the water.

Excellent family experience on the beach. Swim with fish and occasional sea turtle. Waters are mostly shallow, but the rocks are craggly. Be care while walking away from the beach.

Staying on the West Side of Oahu and being on island for only two days, we didn't have time to get to Hanauma Bay, where the best snorkeling is. Kahe Point (Electric Beach) is a fine substitute, and there is no entry fee. Don't leave...More

Not as good as Hanauma Bay but an excellent spot to snorkel on the west side. Beautiful sea life, gorgeous beach and lots of sunshine on the west side. Worth the drive no matter where you are staying on Oahu.

Our private tour guide brought us here and told us some detailed info about the Kahe Point Beach Park and this area. Snorkeling is what this area is famous for. We were told we may see some spinner dolphins and white tip sharks but unfortunately,...More
