Kohanaiki Beach Park (Pine Trees)
Kohanaiki Beach Park is a relatively new park, established in 2013, located in Kailua, Hawaii County, Hawaii. Called “Pine Trees” by the local people, it is a quiet park visited by the local people mainly, its entrance on Hawaii State Highway 19 being shown only as “Shoreline”. There are both sand and rock shores. In the sand shore, there is a small pool where children can swim or wade, while many surfers play in the rock shore. With a rocky bottom, and strong shore break, the swimming at Kohanaiki Beach Park is just okay. However, this great stretch of beach is a renowned location for surfing, barbecues, gatherings, and watching the sunset. It’s no surprise the area is so popular with both locals and visitors.
Camping is allowed here Thursday through Monday, but requires a permit to stay overnight, you can get the permit online and print it out, then pick up the overnight parking pass at the guard shack. They lock the gates from 9 pm at night until 5:30 am so if you’re camping, come prepared. The camping spots are first come first serve, so arriving earlier in the day to check in can get you a better spot.
