What to Expect
Highway 450, Halawa
Halawa Beach Park is actually made up of two beaches - Kama'alaea Beach (the curved beach on the left) and Kawilli Beach (the rocky, more exposed beach on the right). The two beaches together form a curved bay-type area at this eastern end of the island. Both beaches are usually calm in the summer. However, the winter months bring large waves and this becomes an excellent surfing beach. Excellent area for picnics and fishing. The Halawa Stream flows into the Kawilli Beach. This stream is often full and wide due to the heavy rains in the mountains above. The drive to Halawa Beach is well worth the trip. The view of the ocean and the neighbor island of Maui is inspiring.
