Ho'okena Beach Park is the historical site for one of the last active Hawaiian canoe fishing villages in Hawai'i. It offers a rich cultural history and remnants of its old commercial steamship pier remain, with canoes strewn across the beach owned by the fishermen who continue traditional Hawaiian fishing practices passed down from their ancestors. The beach is a nice blend of a wide variety of coral and fine, gray sand, making it an excellent place to camp under the stars, listening to the soothing, sound of waves crashing on the beach then waking up to a gentle, sea breeze to a spectacular view found nowhere else.

Need to reserve online but theres a possibility to just walk up the same day and ask for availability (maybe call ahead). Can get quite crowded. Night guard on duty. Need to bring your own tent.
