Very serene beach park in Waianae. Calm and good for swimming, paddle boarding and surfing. The Army's Pililaau Army Recreation Center is located at Pokai Bay with cabins for military and military guests.

If you don't mind the drive then check out the west side and head to Pokai Bay. The water is beautiful it is really what Hawaii is all about. If your lucky you will get to see dolphins and whales.

It is a nice beach with sailboats and gorgeous mountains, they offer paddleboard rentals. Great place to chill in the sand or under a tree and take in the views. There is also a playground with a nice rubber mat underneath.
