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
A great place to see Sea Turtles, especially if you're not a scuba diver willing to brave the ocean surf. They come and rest right on the beach. No daunting hike required either. An added bonus is...

This beach is definitely not for swimming but if you are a surfer and definitely not a beginner Surfer this is a place to go. These photos were taken a little bit away from the beach park area we were more on the cliff at the end which is really the point but you can sit on the beach park and watch the Surfers spectacular and definitely lots of turtles there. There are picnic tables out there for you to kick back and enjoy the show.
We stopped on our way to Mama's fish house. It is absolutely gorgeous. We were so lucky as we saw a sea lion and about 20 sea turtles. It was one of our most favorite experiences ❤️. ( please if you go there is a ten foot distance to be kept between you and the turtles this is for their protection ) respect nature and appreciate the gift it is. Thank you.
