Regarded as one of the world's top windsurfing destinations, Ho'okipa Beach Park offers picnic facilities and observation decks for both serious surfers and casual sightseers. Although strong winds and dangerous currents often limit surfing to experts, this sandy beach attracts throngs of vacationers. The site's coral reef creates a pond-like area ideal for taking leisurely dips during low tide. The beach park includes public restrooms, showers, and parking areas with panoramic views of the offshore surf. Try to time your visit with one of the beach's world-class surfing competitions and be sure to monitor ocean conditions and obey all posted warnings during your stay. Plan your visit to Ho'okipa Beach Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Paia route site.

  • It was pretty awesome seeing the sea turtles! They matched the lava rocks. There was 1 close to us that we didn't see for a while, blended right in. Parking was annoying, we went on a Saturday...

  • Also check out the beach just to the west below Mama's restaurant. Protected "pool" and not to hard to walk to from the free parking.

  • You want surfers? Check. You want coral reefs? Check. You want to see sea turtle central? Super Check! Excellent beach to do any of the above. Plenty of well kept facilities, areas for barbecuing, and showers. Only thing you can't really do is swim in the area. But great for lounging.
  • Hookipa is a place to visit anytime you want to feel like you are in Hawaii. The windsurfers, surfers, kite boarders, etc are almost always practicing their skills. If you are lucky you may be there during championships. The best in the world participate in these contests. You also find locals teaching these skills to their children. Turtles swim near shore and children play in the sand. This is the place to wear your best bikini.
