Matt Anderson's Take
Tracks Beach Park is located just north of and across the street from the Hawaiian Electric Company's Kapolei power station. Running parallel to the beach are a set of old train tracks, and thus the name Tracks Beach. It's also known as Hawaiian Electric Beach and is right next to Kahe Point Beach Park (Electric Beach).


The train tracks aren't used this far north but a tourist train ride will take you from the city of Ewa Beach, through the Ko Olina Resort, and just south of this beach and then it will head back to Ewa. You can follow these tracks (on foot) right back to the Ko Olina Resort so if you're looking for a short walk (about 1.5 miles) from your Ko Olina hotel then just follow the tracks north to this beach.


Once you pull into the main entrance you'll be in a nasty dirt parking area that's full of huge holes and dips that will not be kind to your car if you aren't careful. You'll likely have better luck heading to the right (rather than left once in the lot) for the lesser-of-evils in terms of potholes.


There is a shower and bathroom here but not much else in terms of facilities. Surfers and bodysurfers love it here and the waters are clear and blue but if you just want swim then the Ko Olina lagoons are a better option. If you want to snorkel try Kahe Point Beach Park (Electric Beach) just south of here.

The waters here are often really nice and clear. Great place to surf if you know what you're doing, and a great place to watch surfers if you don't know what you're doing. The parking lot here is in rough shape.

Where I live people flock to beaches that can't hold a candle to this one. Granted, there is a bumpy parking lot, but who cares? You're driving a rental. Yes, no one wants a power plant near their beach, but San Onofre in SoCal is legendary and no one seems too concerned about the nuclear reactor. Sure, there are better beaches, but if you want to break out of the Ko Olina bubble, see some local flavor, give this place a look.
