Top 10 Beaches in Hawaii

One of GAYOT's Top 10 Beaches in Hawaii, Hookena Beach Park is also a favorite among Hawaii locals


Hookena Beach Park
86-4322 Mamalahoa Hwy.
Captain Cook, HI 96704

The ocean views and scenic vistas are spectacular at this historical site of one of the last fishing villages in Hawaii. Hawaii residents bring their families to Hookena to relax in the small park, complete with restrooms, showers, picnic tables and shade trees. The beach sand is an unusual combination of fine grey coral and white sand. You might be lucky enough to spot a dolphin or turtle here. Rent a kayak or snorkeling gear for some excellent water time.
