Regarded as one of the world's top windsurfing destinations, Ho'okipa Beach Park offers picnic facilities and observation decks for both serious surfers and casual sightseers. Although strong winds and dangerous currents often limit surfing to experts, this sandy beach attracts throngs of vacationers. The site's coral reef creates a pond-like area ideal for taking leisurely dips during low tide. The beach park includes public restrooms, showers, and parking areas with panoramic views of the offshore surf. Try to time your visit with one of the beach's world-class surfing competitions and be sure to monitor ocean conditions and obey all posted warnings during your stay. Plan your visit to Ho'okipa Beach Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Paia route site.
Ho'okipa Beach Park reviews
A must stop in Maui. Worth a day of your time. Shop at Mana Foods or the Cafe just down the road for local picnic foods before hand. Bring a towel and relax. Happy place. more »
We had lunch at Ho'okipa Beach while watching the sea turtles nap (at first, I thought they were rocks!) and surfers ride the waves. It's a great spot to enjoy the view of Maui on your way to Hana. more »
All time family favorite from back in the early 80's!!! Now the amazing turtles swim in to rest starting around 3pm. It's a locals family event too. Keep your distance. Protect our sea life. Mahalo. Enjoy :D
Beautiful day. There was dozens of Surfers out..About 12-15 turtles were on the beach. People stayed a good distance away to take pictures, good. Good day to be. At the beach ..
