There's a lot of vacation homes here facing west, so sunset viewing is easy. There's also a small beach park at the coast, which has some natural wading pools suitable for younger kids. However most roads are long and winding up/downhill, and narrow at some...More

Pros: Beautiful views, stark and lovely. Some gorgeous houses. Cons: 15 minutes to get down the mountain, all switchbacks, not near anything (seriously, at least 45 minute drive to everything worthwhile), no beach access, some dumpy houses and lots of empty lots, more mosquitos than...More

You'll regret it. Boring. Not worth the time. Other parts of the island are much better. Doesn't even feel like Hawaii.

This is a great spot for wading. During our visit we saw rays, turtles and tons of fish in the clear calm water without having to put on any gear. The people we encountered were friendly even when we inadvertently disturbed their fishing. It was...More

The snorkeling site/beach is a good 30 minute walk on a poorly marked "path". There are no trespassing signs everywhere letting you know that you aren't really welcomed. Once you get there it is a quaint beach with marginal snorkeling. The locals we encountered were...More

The actual old village is gone. Now there is low income housing and that for the most part is not cared for. The village has no electricity or running water. The park does have a facility.

There were allot of abandoned cars scattered along the road. The buildings were very run down. We just got the stink eye ase drove through the village. Not a friendly place. A ver nerrow road, & many locals towing and launching small boats.

The winding 5 mile road from Highway 11 to Miloli'i is scenic enough to warrant the side trip,but the city park at the ocean's edge is poorly maintained and signage clearly indicates that community resources cannot be directed at making this spot inviting.

WE have friends staying at a house near the ocean this month and live up in Captain Cook. I was just in Escondido in June. Where is your house here?
