Mahukona Beach Park
Mahukona Beach is unusual in more ways than one. For one, it is not a real beach, but an abandoned commercial harbor run by the Kohala Sugar Company (the harbor was closed in 1956). Remnants of the area’s enterprising past can still be found under water and are in fact one of its main attractions. The beach is not your typical Hawaiian paradise, but it’s definitely got charm.
The calm, clear waters make Mahukona a popular snorkeling spot. The underwater scene here is unique, featuring old mill equipment and machinery and even a shipwreck nestled in between beautiful coral reefs. Together, they make a most peculiar playground for the local marine life. You can also catch a glimpse of Maui from here on a clear day.
