We walked here from a friend's house. I think due to Covid the locals are less happy to see tourists. There is no sand at this beach-just rocks. You can see the Captain Cook Monument. We were able to swim from the beach to our friend's house.

Near the end of our stay in the Captain Cook area we stumbled upon Manini Beach. It's not the most glamorous beach but it's beautiful and has a gentle spirit about it. Walk through the gate into a grassy area with trees and a community garden. Sit at a picnic table and watch the butterflies and birds. Refill your soul listening to the waves on the rocky shore or stroll along the path on the far side of the park area. Talking with the caretaker here was really enlightening, she knows all about what's happening in this special little spot of paradise. This beach park is supported by the Healy Foundation which promotes family and community by providing grants and scholarships in Oregon and Hawaii. Although you are not allowed to launch kayaks here, it does look like a good spot to put in for snorkeling. The water is so clear, we could see fish teeming about right from shore.

No sand here. Just bigger rocks. Still the view is lovely. You can see the Captain Cook monument. Locals come here for a swim. There is a community garden here too.

Good place to chill but not a beach as such but a small shoreline with a few openings into the water to go and soak your feet or something like that

This beach has a nice gated grass area, parking is VERY minimal, no actual beach but the narrow sand channel to enter in easy to find however the snorkeling was just average. There are many cold fresh water spots that had my husband returning to shore in short order. There are so many other fabulous beaches to enjoy I would suggest skipping this one.
