Regarded as one of the world's top windsurfing destinations, Ho'okipa Beach Park offers picnic facilities and observation decks for both serious surfers and casual sightseers. Although strong winds and dangerous currents often limit surfing to experts, this sandy beach attracts throngs of vacationers. The site's coral reef creates a pond-like area ideal for taking leisurely dips during low tide. The beach park includes public restrooms, showers, and parking areas with panoramic views of the offshore surf. Try to time your visit with one of the beach's world-class surfing competitions and be sure to monitor ocean conditions and obey all posted warnings during your stay.
