  • I love taking a morning stroll along the water. There's usually just a handful of people on the beach, though the camping can get pretty crowded. All in all, a great place for some alone time!  more »

  • Mālaekahana State Recreational Park is a great local place to enjoy the beautiful views and gain access to Goat Island. Plan for wind and/or rain at any given moment. Use caution when leaving valuables in your vehicle, as this is a high theft area. The views really are majestic, and it's a great place for a lazy afternoon at the beach. With the wind, it can feel colder than usual here, so plan accordingly.
  • Wonderful area with pristine beaches and picnic areas. Would definitely recommend to anybody who wants to visit a nice natural area with good scenery. It can get a little sketchy towards the evening but otherwise is a pretty safe spot. This is also the best place to walk too goat island. If you visit please be mindful of wildlife, especially any nesting seabirds you might come across. Only go swimming here if you are an experienced swimmer. Swells can come in suddenly and unexpected, especially during the winter.
