Ho'okipa Beach Park Paia

Except for the corner of land at the base of outcrop where sand and sea meet, the beach is protected by a reef, forming a shallow pool, great for kids, waders and surfer babies.
For me, it’s the most perfect beach to just sit back and watch all the action (including a returning family of monk seals who rest on the beach from time to time).
