We saw the sign on the highway, but drove past the first time. The main indicator is a spray-painted sign on the concrete barrier that indicates the park (next to bridge). You can park and walk down to the park, but most of it is...More

We had some difficulty finding the park, having missed it when we first turned off Hawaii Belt Road (#190). After going a short distance on a curvy road, we turned around and backtracked. We found the place when we saw vehicles parked by the gate....More

A prominent sign on the south end of the hwy bridge announces this park, but after you turn off, it's difficult to actually find it. Once you reach the bottom of the ravine, the sign there is missing, the road gated, and the hairpin turn-off...More

As of early December 2017, the contamination warning signs are still up. However, the chains across the entrance road were down... my guess is without approval! The park is now overgrown and has a slightly creepy abandon feeling. Appears to be a bit of a...More

We drove down to kolekole beach park and there was a chain across the entrance road. I was so disappointed as was my guest. I looked into the reason why and it appears that there newly discovered high lead levels in the soil.

Beautiful place to sit on driftwood and watch the surf crash in - huge waves, kids were thrilled. Absolutely not for swimming, however. Some semi-permanent campers onsite, very friendly.

It is very easy to miss this hideaway. Drive slowly and watch carefully. It's about 3 miles from Akala Falls. Perfect spot for a picnic - complete with pavilions. We did see some campers there, as well. Wonderful view of ocean waves coming in. But...More

After seeing signs for this on the road we ventured onto this switchback 1 lane road and came upon this Oceanfront park with waterfalls and stream. Great spot for a picnic - too dangerous to swim at - hidden under a bridge overpass but with...More

This spot is kind of easy to miss (we had to turn around after we spotted it) and when you drive the narrow road down the hill, you have to make a hairpin turn at the bottom to get into the beach park itself. This...More

Just went there again this weekend. There are only families with small children there every time I've been there, but I do leave before dark to go home, so I'm not sure about the homeless population. It doesn't have much in... More
