Fodor's Review

This lush park is tucked away under a high bridge that crosses a gulch along Highway 19, between Akaka and Umauma falls. The beach is composed of large, smooth, waterworn lava rocks, where the Kolekole stream meets the ocean. Although the shoreline is rocky and the ocean rough, the stream is usually calm and great for swimming, and the backdrop is stunning. There's even a rope swing tied to a banyan tree on the opposite side. The park is popular with locals, especially on weekends, when it can get rowdy. Where the stream meets the ocean, the surf is rough and the currents strong. Only very experienced swimmers should venture here. Amenities: parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: swimming.
