Ho'okipa Beach Park, Paia
(4.8/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Go to the lookout and look for the blue tent selling mango bread. Made fresh daily and its so good!! 
  • Great view of surf and surfers, good photo op but parking needs to be expanded, turn it into a proper tourist look-out. 
  • hot spot for surfers and we were able to spot 6 turtles on the beach when we got there - everyone was respectful of these large creatures. there are change rooms and restrooms so this is a plus
