Kualoa Beach Park

Kualoa Beach Park is located on the east side of Oahu in Kaneohe across the street from the Kualoa Ranch.  Parking is free and is right in front of a sprawling lawn facing one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

The island off in the distance is called Chinaman's Hat. The water is calm, clear, and shallow making this a perfect beach for families.

This park has plenty of trees to supply shade for a family picnic. The huge lawn is great for flying a kite, soccer, or throwing a football.

Kualoa Beach Park offers an awesome view of  the Ko'olau  Mountain range. If this look familiar its because this mountain range is a backdrop for the Lost TV series. Many Hollywood films were also shot at the Kualoa Ranch right across the street.

Chinaman's Hat is easily reachable by Kayak. Off in the distance we could see quite a few people on the island. The calm, shallow, and clear waters of Kualoa Beach Park make it perfect for kayaking and snorkeling.

Here is a departing shot of the beautiful view. Kualoa Beach Park is conveniently located near the Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm Outlet which is a great place for the family to shop.  We stayed only for a bit to have lunch and check out the Kualoa Ranch across the street, but we could have just as easily spent the whole day here. It was quite relaxing and a great way to de-stress.

It takes about 40 minutes to get to Kualoa Beach from Waikiki. The address for your GPS is 49-479 Kamehameha Highway. Enjoy!
