Matt Anderson's Take
Leahi Beach Park is an interesting place. Although technically a beach park, there really isn't any beach here. Well, there is, but it's under the water. At certain times of low tide there is a narrow bit of sand but it's usually wet anyhow.


The first issue is that there is no parking at all right near the beach park so you'll either need to park over a quarter mile west of here in Kapiolani Park or along one of the residential streets to the west (look for legal parking places on Coconut Ave, Kiele Ave, Kalakaua Ave to name a few) if you can find any open spots.


The park itself is a nice and fairly large grassy area and it offers some nice ocean views so it might be a nice place to relax but considering the walk to get here there isn't much point unless you live right around here. Even then there are much better beach options nearby.


If you head towards the ocean here, then turn right, you will find a very narrow beach walk bridge that heads west. Follow that walkway and you'll end up at nearby Kaluahole Beach & Makalei Beach Park, which is slightly better than Leahi Beach Park that you just left, but it's a neat little walk.

This is another one of those places that's neat if you live around here and can easily walk here. The lack of parking makes it worthless to everyone else. Nice park area but the beach isn't really a beach. Skip it.
