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.
