Kolekole Beach Park isn't a typical beach park because there really isn't a sandy beach here. It's really just rocks and boulders that make up the shoreline here. It's also not a place you'll want to swim because the water currents are just too dangerous and the water is quite murky as the Kolekole Stream empties into the ocean here.

So why visit Kolekole Beach? Simple, it's a tropical paradise complete with a stream, waterfall, ocean views, and it even has some facilities on top of that. It's a good place to BBQ and picnic and just relax, at least if it's a weekday. You can even camp here, though you'll need a permit for that. On the weekend this place is likely to be busy with locals doing the same thing so probably best to leave it for them on those days.

If the river isn't too insane you may spot some kids playing in the water or by the waterfall. If you're planning to take a dip yourself just remember that all freshwater streams in Hawaii run the danger of Leptospirosis. If you want an easy waterfall to see or photograph, this is surely a good spot. If you're wondering where all of this water comes from, it's the same water you saw at Akaka Falls State Park.
