Kualoa Regional Park - Beschreibung

Idyllic tranquility away from the city - Kualoa Regional Park

A narrow strip full of white sandy beach, lined with a green area on one side and the turquoise sea water on the other, invites visitors to throw everyday worries overboard. The highlight of the beach, the nearby island of Mokoli'i.

Kualoa Regional Park is located at the northern end of Kane'oho Bay. It is located almost directly on the Kamehameha Highway. But visitors to the beach don't notice the noisy highway. The park has a large grassy area and the distance literally swallows the noise of the road. Visitors are welcomed here by the idyllic quiet beach life and it is not difficult to get away from everyday stress. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, it is now time to spread out a blanket, put on sunglasses and bury your toes in the warm sand. To some, the Kualoa Mountains in the background and the lush green nature in the surrounding area certainly look strangely familiar. No wonder, the scenery is world famous and served as the location of many famous movies, such as Jurassic Park.

Many visitors to the beach, both locals and vacationers like to come here to engage in sports activities. Few beaches have such a large lawn, which is perfect for throwing Frisbee or playing ball. There is also a lot to discover for the water rats among us. The highlight of the beach is the offshore island Mokoli'i or Chinaman's Hat, as it is colloquially called. Only about 600 meters from the sandy beach, it offers an ideal destination to start a canoe trip or paddle across on a surfboard. Some of the visitors get the idea to swim across at low tide, however, this is not a good idea. After all, you have to swim through the open sea for this, without any protection. Even when the tide is low, the water is very shallow and the distance is only a few hundred meters, there can be strong currents in the open sea at any time. Those who want to swim have ideal conditions directly on the beach. Shallow sandy bottom provides a perfect entrance into the cool water. In some places the seabed is rocky and swimming is difficult, but at the southern end of the beach there is a natural rock barrier in the sea. The water here is higher and equally calm. The perfect place for swimming and splashing.

Interesting information for visitors

Facilities at Kualoa Regional Park:

Visitors who are traveling with their own camper and want to spend the night at the beach, are here at the right place. The park has about 30 sites and welcomes visitors. In addition to the sites, both campers and guests of the beach are offered a variety of picnic facilities including BBQ opportunities. Showers and restrooms are also accessible at the beach park. To ensure the safety of guests, lifeguards can be found on the beach daily.

Directions and parking:

The easiest and fastest way to get to Kualoa Regional Park is by car. From Waikiki, you can easily reach the other side of the island by taking Highway 61 north and then turning west onto Highway 83. Ample free parking is available at the Regional Park.
Travel by public bus is also possible, but depending on the time of day and the route chosen, expect a one-way travel time of around 2 hours and two to three changes.
