Pokai Beach Park: Hawaiian Homeland




Pokai Beach Park has the safest swimming on the West Side of Oahu. Weekends bring a flood of locals with lots of huli huli chicken on the grill. In the late afternoons on weekdays, the bay is the training ground for outrigger canoe teams. The park was named for Pokai, a navigator among the first Tahitian voyagers who arrived as early as 200 AD. Full directions to the neighboring Kuilioloa Heiau are in the new 2013 Oahu Trailblazer.
