This beach is great for parties and water activities. Need to get there very early to reserve a spot. Great place for little ones as there are rocks that create a little pool and help break the waves.

Terrific spot to relax all day with the family. Waves consistent, sand soft. This public park has picnic tables, restrooms and BBQ grills.. Bring water, towels, boards, sunscreen & beach umbrella. No stores within walking distance. Make friend/family memories @ Launiupoko Beach.

We were doing a do it yourself drive it tour and stumbled on this beautiful beach. We stayed awhile and enjoyed seeing young surfers trying their best. We were midweek and later in the day so not a parking problem..

Needing to find a beach where my daughter could surf and the rest of us could swim or just lay around, Launiupoko Beach Park is almost ideal. The waves were plentiful for a beginner/intermediate surfer and the beach was great for general water play for...More

I'd suggest Kimo's on Front Street, but parking can be tough. It's lovely, well known for good food and gorgeous views, could be crowded b/c it's popular. Another idea is Frida's Beach House behind Safeway on the water. It's... More
