James Kealoha Beach Park

Lonely Planet review

Further along the road, this county park is best for older kids and snorkelers. Locals call it 'Four Miles' (the distance between the park and the downtown post office). For swimming and snorkeling, head to the eastern side, which has a deep, protected basin with generally calm, clear water and pockets of white sand. The park's western side is open ocean and much rougher. Locals surf here in winter or net fish. There are weekend lifeguards, restrooms, showers and covered pavilions.
