  • The campsite was well-groomed and clean. There was a picnic table in the site and ash pits nearby. There was trash along the beach and we found a piece of broken glass, so be careful or don't go baref...  more »
  • We visited on a weekday and the place was almost deserted. There is no fee to enter. There is a lot of beach here and beautiful waves to surf or simply sit and watch. We saw a Hawaiian Monk seal swimm...  more »
  • This is easily my favorite place on Oahu. The campground is simple, accessible, and beautiful. I go on a monthly basis, though during the summer you definitely have to be on top of the days that the c...  more »

  • Very nice facilities and beaches. Directly across from Goat Island. You can wade to the island. Very nice.
  • The hale we had was number 8 and has a nice porch area which was up higher than some of the other hale so was useful during the times of rain.
  • What a great place to camp or even just spend the day. I love camping here because the bathroom facilities are nice and there is plenty of room, plus you can beat the view of the stars in the night sky here. They have plenty of open spaces and trees for hanging hammocks. There are sandy areas and grassy areas. Plenty of parking!
  • Went there on a weekday, three locals were drinking beer and listening to the music on the parking lot. When I returned, I found all wheels off my car pissed all over. I guess that's a kind of a famous Hawaiian hospitality.
  • Very beautiful beach, it was surprising how we had a great stretch of the beach all to ourselves one day. There is a nearby Goat island that supposedly you can wade to on a good day, but the day that we were there the waves were rough and it looked too iffy trying to get over to the island, so we just spent time exploring the beach.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
