Hauula Beach Park Information

Hauula Beach Park Information

Hauula Beach Park is located along the coastal highway just north of the town of Hauula. As with most Oahu beaches, it is more crowded on weekends, but is great for snorkeling and surfing and the park is large.

There is an offshore coral reef to protect this strip of coast from the open ocean, but the waves are still large enough to ride and it's also a fun place to swim. The floor of the shallow blue waters is particularly rocky, though, so it's not ideal for wading if you need to put your feet down too often.

The Maakua stream enters the sea along this coast and there can be deep holes in the sea floor where the stream waters push in. The narrow belt of sand curves just slightly and is backed by grass lawns and trees, with some trees scattered right along the water.

Colorful fish are plentiful along the reef, but rip currents are also present in the reef breaks at both ends of the beach.

The beach's namesake, the hau tree, was once ubiquitous in this area and although it's scarce now, there are still some around. They have a unique blossom cycle in summer when flowers will bloom, change colors dramatically (from bright yellow to dark red), and fall off the tree all in one day, over and over again for months.

The park has restrooms, picnic and camping facilities, a pavilion and a volleyball court.

It's located along Kamehameha Hwy., across the road from the ruins of the historic Lanakila Church.
