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.

Ho'okipa Beach Park reviews
It was pretty awesome seeing the sea turtles! They matched the lava rocks. There was 1 close to us that we didn't see for a while, blended right in. Parking was annoying, we went on a Saturday...

Also check out the beach just to the west below Mama's restaurant. Protected "pool" and not to hard to walk to from the free parking.

The waves were impressive today, a swell had arrived and this break got the best part of it. We were rewarded with beautiful waves and got to see some talented surfers of all ages enjoy them. Kind of sad it was a brief stop on my journey to my destination. Parking was easy to find and the roosters were hilarious. One even had 4 girls he was minding🤣
Delightful beach. Great ocean and surf, and watching the surfers was epic fun. Saw maybe 25 turtles. 10-15 up on the South end beach. Then a Hawaiian monk seal on the North end beach. Great snorkelling and phenomenal people watching.
