My husband and I went to Goat Island/Mokuauia Beach on three separate occasions. The first time we were simply in awe of the natural beauty. We were also amazed at the force the waves created by coming in from two directions around the island. We...More

If you are looking for a bit of an adventure, make sure you make this one of your stops! Park in the parking lot, but make sure you drive slowly, as there are LOTS of potholes. Leave all unnecessary materials locked in your car unless...More

It is tough to find, but there is a park that you start from. You walk to the island. It is a little tough depending on the season and tide. Once there the white sand beach is relaxing. Fun side trip.
