Mokuleia Beach Park

Reviewed By J M - Nashville, Tennessee

While we stayed in Mokuleia Beach Colony, every afternoon as many as a dozen kite surfers took to the water at Mokuleia Beach Park. It was amazing. Narrow beach. Clean. Lots of rocks in water. Port-a-potties. Go watch the kite surfers and stay for the sunset. Never crowded.

Aweoweo Beach Park

Reviewed By Lem W - Anchorage

We decided to check out this beach after hearing that there were regularly turtles swimming there, and we were not disappointed. We walked up and almost instantly spotted one swimming off the end of one of the big pipes that frame the ends of the beach. We watched it pop up and wave its flippers for quite some time. Sounds like this is the case every day.

It was Saturday afternoon and the beach was quite busy--lots of locals having BBQs, playing basketball and on the playground equipment, etc. Still lots of open sand to claim though in the middle of the afternoon. The beach is pretty swimmable; there's a good stretch of sandy ocean floor that's good for kids and has gentle waves. Further out there is some good places to snorkel and swim with the turtles.

We had a great visit at this stop to see the turtles. There was one baking in the sun and 2 swimming in the nearby water. We were nervous with the parking but found a spot. Lots of people.

Makaleha Beach Park

Reviewed By Reverend T M - Honolulu, Hawaii

This beach is a very secluded and isolated. It is also very beautiful and fun.

It is often overlooked as people are headed to more popular beaches: Kaena Point and Mokuleia Beach Park.

There is ample off road parking in the grass on both sides of the road. The beach is down a short path sided on both sides by a wire fence to keep the horses in.

Having horses on the beach adds an "old Hawaii" feel, and although it is a bit out of the way, this beach is definitely worth the trip.

When you reach the beach: To the Left/North you will find fishermen, snorkelers and sunbathers. To the right/South you will find a Clothing Optional nude beach with lots of sunbathers and swimmers.

On both sides there will be beach goers and sunbathers of all ages, toddlers to grandparents.

If you visit the Nudist side then please be mindful of your picture taking. It is very RUDE to take pictures in this area without asking.

Have Fun

Haleiwa Beach Park

Reviewed By Patricia H - Yorkville, Illinois

We were looking for a kids friendly beach and locals pointed us here . Sand was not very clean, and the background had some abandoned looking homes that just didn’t fit in the picture . Ocean had nice waves but that’s about all . Didn’t stay more than 5 minutes .

Turtle Beach

Reviewed By Susan Z

This is a wonderful stretch of beach on the island's windward side. There are volunteer's to answer questions and keep an eye out for vandals. We did not see any turtles on the day we stopped but the volunteer told us we missed several the day before. Parking is rather sketchy and beware you can be ticketed if you are parked along the road.

Haleiwa Alii Beach Park

Reviewed By solotouristDallas_Tx - dallas, tx

Not as stunning as some other beaches - but still very pretty. Small beach on far side of park seemed calm & family-friendly. Main beach was not crowded & several people were out surfing. Would be a good place to cool down if spending time in Haleiwa. Parking adjacent to marina (weekday) was very easy. This beach is in town (turn @ 7-eleven/marina).

Haleiwa Art Gallery

Reviewed By Chipper77 - Camarillo, California

This is a little shop in the shopping mall in Haleiwa - we walked through it and found the sales people very friendly and it was a tad warm that day - nice to walk through a nice cool place. They had some lovely pieces - especially of sea life. I would go back and check it out again the next time I am there.

Wyland Galleries

Reviewed By SoCalOregonian - Murrieta, California

As a collector of Wyland art (paintings and sculptures) we stopped by here after lunch at Kono's. This is a typical Wyland gallery, with many pieces by him and quite a few pieces by local artisans. We just looked this time. Sales associates are friendly and helpful.
