The is a great park right in front of Chinaman’s hat. You can pull over for some great pictures and enjoy a picnic lunch while you look around. The mountains behind you provide more gorgeous views.

Not a lot to do, but look at it, but you should stop and take some pictures. We enjoyed the few minutes that we stayed there and we took some great pics.

Hop aboard a kayak and make the trek across the shallow waters, pull your boat up out of the water and a steep hike gets you one of the coolest views around on the top of this small island!! It’s a pretty scary climb up...More

We had rented extra kayaks from TwoGood Kayaks in Kailua early that morning. Driving north, we parked at Kualoa Regional Park and spoke with the lifeguard who mentioned he'd spotted a few jellyfish that day. Beautiful day, healthy breeze (9 kts) and the paddle to...More

A neat ocean view. I would like to kayak out there next visit, or walk out at low tide. Easy parking and picnicking at the nearby park.
