Ocean & Coastline
Living By The Ocean
Imagine how the people who lived here used the ocean and its resources. Just like them, you can enjoy the coastal views, take a tidal pool walk or watch a beautiful sunset along the seashore. Fishing and gathering of some ocean resources are allowed - guided by State of Hawaii regulations.
Remember, the ocean is part of nature and can be dangerous and unpredictable at times. Prepare for a safe visit around the ocean. Be aware of and attentive to slippery surfaces, wave movement, tidal fluctuations, and other changing elements. There are NO LIFEGUARDS. Check with the Hale Ho`okipa Visitor Center for the latest information about ocean currents, high surf warnings or weather advisories when planning your ocean activities.
