Great sand - beautiful water - few people

Seems it's more a surfing place than typical beach fun, lots of rocks.

The views are great though.

Not much of a hike, more of a place to hang out on the beach. Watch the surfers and kiteboarders, hang out with the sea turtles.

Nice park and beach for surfers. If you’re not a surfer, this is a nice stopover towards Hana where you can enjoy the views. There are rock outcropping a but be careful around the ride pools.

I have enjoyed watching the amazing windsurfers from the safety of the beautiful shore.

Been here several times, it's a great start to the Hana Hwy drive. Ho'okipa Beach Park is the place to watch wind surfers get air and tackle some rough surf when the wind is up. Two sections - one at beach level and one up above give you some great views.

Very easy walk down the rocks to the beach. Large sea turtles down on the one end, didn't realize they would be that large. Tons of surfers today which was cool to watch. Good breeze while down by the water.

Turtles come up on the beach here. The windsurfers are cool to watch.

Beautiful views. You can see sea turtles sunbathing on the shore, but keep away and respect the animals. Good viewing of surfers, kite boarding, and windsurfers.

Not a hike at all! Just a stop on the road to overlook Ho'okipa and a beautiful lookout point. The view is definitely worth the stop. You can even watch the surfers, it seems to be a pretty popular local spot.
