Honoli'i Beach Park is the place for surfing and boogie boarding on this part of the island. Because of that, it's heavily used by locals who are into these watersports. Summer months are great for beginning surfers while the winter months are best for advanced surfers.

As for swimming, well that's really not recommended as there are strong rip currents and the ocean floor drops off quickly. Besides, it's a very rocky beach and not sandy so getting in and out of the water can be a little difficult for some. You might find some people instead swimming over in the Honoli'i Stream which empties into the ocean here. Just remember that with all fresh water streams you run the risk of Leptospirosis.

Because this is such a popular place with local surfers, it's also a fun place to come and watch. The biggest problem here is the lack of parking which is basically just whatever you can find along the side of the road.
