  • A very nice recreation area along the Kamehameha Highway 83 on the North East side of the island. The park has plenty of parking and has modern bathroom facilities, you can also camp but only in designated areas with a permit. The beach is nice to walk along or also for swimming but be careful between the shore and Goat Island because of the cross currents. Five stars.... yes... what can I say bad about the place????
  • Nice beaches. Need a code for the gate to enter. Closed form 7pm-7am. Can vamp. Look at the website.
