1. Kamaole Beach Park 1

When the water is glistening and the sun is shining, grab a snorkel and some flippers and bask in the aquarium like abundance of tropical fish and crystal waters. Out on the shore, walk the white sandy beach at sunrise or sunset to take in the beautiful view of pinks, oranges, and reds reflecting off the water. This beach is perfect for kids who want to play in the soft, smooth sand or for the families who enjoy boogie boarding along the shoreline. Find good food and great shops only minutes from the beach including an ABC store stocked with the best beach snacks. Set up next to the barbecues on the grassy area or dive into a game of volleyball with the net set up on the grass. We like to call this beach the crown pleaser

Lovingly cared for by the same family for more than three decades, this 38-acre Haiku farm is one of the oldest in Hawai’i, according to the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s  studies of tropical agriculture.
