MALAEKAHANA STATE RECREATION AREA
56-335 Kamehameha Highway, Kahuku

Superb, wooded park and white sand beach. Moku Auia (Goat Island) offshore contains an Eden-like beach (reachable by wading at low tide when the sea is calm) and a state bird sanctuary (off limits to public). Note: Wading to Moku Auia can be dangerous (strong currents exist when the tides change or the surf is high; ocean floor has sharp coral - be sure to protect your feet.)

Parking, restrooms, picnic tables, showers, camping.
