Ho'okipa Beach Park, Paia

(4.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Paia trip builder to arrange your visit to Ho'okipa Beach Park and other attractions in Paia.

  • Beautiful beach, great for surfing for people with experience. A lot of rapids and reef. Caution when dive. As an option for cooling off, the beach has a natural pool formed by the barrier reef. Furthermore, on both sides has cliffs with beautiful view.
