Full Description
Kukui'ula Harbor Beach, or simply Kukui'ula Beach as it's also known, is located right next to Kukuiula Small Boat Harbor and is a good spot to launch a small boat (at the harbor) or kayak (from the beach).


The beach actually has a lot going for it such as a large grassy area, bathrooms, showers, and a good amount of parking available.


The beach area is small but it's usually not too crowded here, though it might get crowded on weekends when the locals come to launch their boats. The area is also good for swimming since it's somewhat protected from the open ocean.


If it has rained recently there may be some storm runoff entering the ocean here at the north end of the beach. If that's the case, you'll want to skip this beach for sure. There is nothing fun about murky waters and swimming in murky waters should be avoided as sharks tend to prefer murky waters (see Shark Attacks In Hawaii).

Nice enough beach when the ocean is clear and it's not likely to be busy here which I like. There are some good, shallow areas to play in with kids (as long as the ocean is calm) but it's hard to call this a destination beach. If you're in the area it's fine, otherwise you can find better beaches.

Local hangout with some interesting black lava reef to check out. A safe area to take little ones to play. I'm not spending much time here unless it's to take my plate lunch and chow down.
