Ka'a'awa Beach Park

Ka'a'awa Beach Park, Oahu

Ka'a'awa Beach Park (see more photos , view panorama) on Oahu's windward coast has a narrow sandy beach. Because of a shallow reef on the nearshore ocean bottom, the swimming conditions are rather poor. There are a few sandy patches on the nearshore ocean bottom where it's fun to splash around in. Otherwise snorkeling can be fun when the ocean is calm.

The beach park is mainly used by fishermen, campers and picnickers. Fishermen come here to catch he'e (octopus). In the Hawaiian language, Ka'a'awa means “the yellow wrasse fish,” a reef fish that was once abundant on the reefs in this area.

This beach is great for swimming or snorkeling near the shore. The water is so clear and azure blue!
