What to Expect
87-021 Farrington Highway, West O'ahu
This beach is named for the numerous pebbles (ili'ili) found nearby. In ancient times these stones had many uses as fish sinkers, game pieces, and musical instruments. Today this beach is a popular site for surfers. There is good swimming during the summer months when the surf is calm. The sandy beach is large at this time but erodes away during the winter.
