Full Description
Hanama'ulu Beach Park is located right on lovely Hanama'ulu Bay and offers beachgoers some nice amenities such as picnic tables and BBQ grills. You can even camp here, though a permit is required for that.

The beach, although picturesque, isn't the best place to swim. The water here can be murky as the Hanama'ulu Stream empties into the ocean here.

Murky water is not just unappealing in general, it's also the preferred water for sharks (see Shark Attacks In Hawaii). While this place probably isn't overly sharky, it's something to be aware of.

Hanama'ulu Beach Park is a pretty popular, especially on weekends, with local families.

I'm not a fan of murky water so this isn't a beach I would swim at or recommend because of that. Of course, it's still a nice place with great views. Come and have a picnic or get a permit and camp out. Or bring the kids to run around and play.

This is a decent beach park. There are large grassy areas, playground, picnic benches, BBQs, bathrooms, and a good amount of parking. The bay itself was brown today since it has been raining a lot lately and the river runs into it. It is pretty but not super exciting. I would skip this if you are trying to save time. Nice for a weekend bbq with the family, though. Great for local families.
