For liability reasons, we cannot speculate on the safety of the beach for your children. We can, however, say that our coastline is protected by barrier reefs adn there is good sandy bottom swimming a short walk from the property where many residents bring their small children to play. Of course, if the weather is rough or you feel that conditions are not suitable for your level of swimming, you should never enter the water. WHEN ENTERING THE WATER, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. HALE KOOLAU IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INCIDENTS THAT MAY OCCUR WHEN YOU ARE IN THE WATER AS WE DO NOT PROVIDE A CERTIFIED LIFEGUARD ON OUR PROPERTY.
