Kakaʻako Waterfront Park

Beach in Honolulu

Near downtown, Kakaʻako Park feels far away from the urban jungle, attracting experienced surfers in the morning and picnickers in the afternoon. Inline skaters roll along the rock-fringed promenade, offering clear views of Diamond Head and Honolulu Harbor. It’s not a safe swimming spot and there's no sandy beach, but Point Panic is a killer bodysurfing break offshore. Limited facilities include restrooms, drinking water and picnic tables.
