Pokai Bay Beach Park, Waianae

Poka’i Bay Beach Park

If you find yourself on the west side of the island, I highly recommend spending an afternoon at Poka’i Bay Beach Park.

Because of its breakwater offshore that blocks high surf, Poka’i Bay is the most protected beach on the leeward (west) coast of O’ahu. And makes it a favorite gathering place for families, swimmers, and ocean recreation.

The bay lies between the small boat harbor in Wai’anae and Kane’ilio Point a peninsula which is home to the Ku’ilioloa Heiau, an ancient Hawaiian temple site.

Poka’i Bay is named after the Hawaiian Chief Poka’i, who is believed to have brought the first coconut palm tree to Hawai’i.
