Kekaha Kai State Park
Kekaha Kai State Park offers a nice setting for people that like to enjoy the outdoors. The main entrance to the state park is about 2 miles off of Highway 19 along an unpaved road. Once you arrive at the state park there is limited parking so you may have to park in some of the areas along the road further from the water. There are restrooms for your use at the parking lot. Once you head to the beach you will find beautiful white sand and the beautiful blue water Hawaii is known for. The water here is filled with rocks so it is not the greatest area to swim. Mahaiula Bay and Makalawena Beach are also part of Kekaha Kai State Park and offering better areas for swimming. Along the beach you will find picnic tables along with grills nestled under trees. We also ran into a large family of goats, which seemed to be regulars at this beach. If you want to see this area, but want a better beach experience you can hike north to the beach at Mahaiula Bay and if you go even further north you will find a beautiful beach called Makalawena Beach.
