Moku'auia Island (more popularly known as Goat Island) has no goats, but used to have goats. Goat Island is like my second home. If you are a diver and a surfer, like me, then you already know about Goat Island. But, if you are a tourist, then you probably do not know about Moku'auia Island. Most tourists know and hang around Waikiki Beach, which is great if you like "over-crowded beaches". But, if you like beaches where you are the only one, or where there are few, if any, other persons, then you will love Goat Island. Take old, junk, closed-toe shoes (you will be walking on coral) (rubber is preferred). Take drinking water, towel, beach stuff. Walk to the island. I have been taking my kids from when they were babies. Just Aloha 'Aina (love the land, and protect the land), and enjoy. Just do not trespass on private property; otherwise, you will face the consequences.

Three adults with water shoes went at the lowest tide we could find but the water was up to our hips at times. The reef isn’t walkable, you need to go over it as there is a strong current through there. We made it just fine and it was fun to say we walked out to an island. We then circled the little island, keeping to the trails at the outside edge as this is now a bird sanctuary. Lovely views, very peaceful. We trekked back through the rising surf and we’re very glad we got back when we did. Watch out for low tide here. Very important. It was a fun little thing to do and certainly something different! There is no snorkeling here as the current is too strong, and when we were leaving, the surf too rough.

Stayed at an Air BnB, and our hostess Lindsey recommended going here, and WHAT AN AWESOME AMAZING place~~!! Be sure to go before high tide at 11am or so, and you can WALK to the island off Oahu~~!! MUCH BETTER than the other Flat Island you can ocean kayak to, and it's FREE~~!! Only thing is - take a boogie board to help you balance as the Corrals underneath are massive and pointy. Also - you have to wear water shoes as it's going to be very pokey and spikey underneath your feet~~!!

We walked from the back yard of our rental house near the shores of Malaekahana State park to Goat Island w 3 adults and 4 tw/eenage girls ages 11-15. The walk across the reef requires water shoes and takes abt 10 minutes each way. Once on the island, you could spend all day lounging and playing. Very private and fun place to go. The kids wished we had gone earlier in our trip so we could have gone again!
