Kokololio Beach Park is a large beach located in Laie on the east side of Oahu. It's just south of the popular Polynesian Cultural Center.

This beach park is all about fun. Nearly every time we visit Kokololio Beach, we can see the aftermath of the partying by the overflowing trash cans. We all remember those places we used to party at when growing up, and for those growing up in Hawaii this is one of those places.

When you arrive at Kokololio Beach Park, you'll notice a large grove of trees and big grassy areas to play volleyball or other activities with a large group of people. You can't see the ocean until you walk up and over a hill that leads down to a sandy stretch of beach. During the summer months it's okay for snorkeling and swimming, but during the winter you'll be sitting on the shoreline watching the pounding waves.

There are picnic tables, and you'll see lots of locals using this area during the summer months. Because it's a popular beach, it might be hard to reserve a campsite. The campsites are for 5 day permits, whether you stay for 1 or 5 days. Permits can be obtained from the County of Honolulu.

Camping at any local beach in Hawaii can be a mixed bag. You could have a peaceful tranquil evening with the lapping sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep, or you could get the screaming teenagers with a loud partying boom box blaring away. Kind of a vibe killer. If you can reserve a spot during the week, that's your best bet.

The amenities here are good and include showers, restrooms, and ample parking. If you're craving something to eat, Laie is just up the road.
