PRINCEVILLE BEACHES


 

Moloa'a Beach


Moloaa Bay with rocky sand
 
Description
Moloa'a Bay is another fabulous beach nestled in a 1/3 mile wide bay with good reef protection.  Once upon a time, the visitor was assured of having this spot of paradise all to themselves.  But starting in the mid 1990's homes have been developed along the beachfront very close to the sand.  Now you feel like you are swimming in someone's back yard.  You can get a less obtrusive feeling if you walk to the sides of the bay. 

The reef holds down the surf and offers nice snorkeling when seas are mellow.  The reef creates multiple shades of turquoise and blue.  There is good fishing.  Skilled locals manage to catch lobsters.  A meandering stream divides the beach into two strands of sand.  You'll see horses grazing on the nearby bluff. 

EXERCISE CAUTION.  As waves come over the reef and fill the bay with water, a strong current can exist in the channel where the water flows back to the sea.  Tragically, a swimmer lost his life in 2009.
