Sunbathing is nice at One Alii Beach Park where there are two beaches called One Alii I and One Alii II. Swimming is not great since the beach is narrow and comprised mostly of rock and coral without a lot of sand. However, this is a great place for a picnic or just relaxing and enjoying the scenery. This park also features two stone monuments that commemorate the 75th and 100th anniversaries of immigration to Hawaii from Japan.
Sunbathing, picnics, swimming (when water is calm).
The Alii Fishpond in this area was used by Hawaiian royalty (alii) to raise fish. Royalty also swam and fished in the ocean here. There were once more than 50 ancient Hawaiian fishponds in this area and many of the ruins now lie beneath mud or are hidden by mangrove trees.
Need to Know
The water here is sometimes a bit cloudy so it isn’t too good for snorkeling. Do not go in the water during times of high surf or rough water. The winter months often bring large waves to this area.
