Hau'ula Beach Park on Oahu's windward coast is a popular camping and picnicking site among local residents. There is only a very narrow beach, and because of a shallow nearshore reef, the swimming conditions are poor. However, snorkeling is possible when the ocean is calm. Also, a beginners' surf spot is located offshore at the northern end of the park.
Hau'ula, meaning “red hau” in the Hawaiian language, was named for the hau flowers, the native Hibiscus tiliaceus, which bloom in the summer months.

Reviews and Comments:
We were on the way to the north shore when it suddenly
started raining cats and dogs. We don't like driving in
the rain unless we know the place so we had to stop at
this beach. We saw this park has a large sheltered
area, so we went there. When it stopped raining there
was a beautiful rainbow over the ocean.
