This off-the-beaten-track beach is a perfect spot to have a picnic or just hang out by the water. It was relatively busy when we visited but didn't seem overcrowded, and I have a feeling that's probably pretty usual. They have bathrooms there, too, which is nice bonus.

Drove by today. Very nice viewing beach. There is no sand, but there is a wading area. There is a 15 step up gazebo viewing area with two picnic tables. Restrooms available.

Stopped by this beautiful beach park while playing tourist. It was a clear day and we could see the outline of the Island of Maui. Wonderful day.

We drove one mile off the main road to this beach park. We were delighted that we did because it was a quiet area to take a break and enjoy the view of the ocean and landscape. It was so clear we could even see Maui!

There's a covered area to watch the waves hit the rocks. There are about 20 short steps, but you could watch from ground level, too. There's also a nice pavilion if you want a picnic. Can be pretty windy but gorgeous views.

Out of the way, not well noted, more of a local county park with picnic spots and swingsets. Unsurpassed views

Quiet place to kick back. Nice and cooler beach with limited sunshine Rough Rocky Beach. looks like the real, wild Hawaii. Mainly only a few locals here with the occasional tourist driving through. Nice to take a nap on the grass or in car for 30 minutes or so.

wonderful quiet place to sit and watch. Early morning is best because no wind and no waves. Fishermen go out in kayaks.

If you go to the Pololu Lookout, take a few minutes and stop at the Keokea Beach Park on your way back. It is a nice, quiet, park with some nice views. Not worth a trip by itself, but a nice add-on to an existing trip.
