A five mile trail leads along the coast from Yokohama Bay to Ka'ena Point with tide pools, small natural stone arches nice views of Makua. The beaches also offer beautiful views of the coast and the most northwest point of O'ahu.

Recreation - Visitors to this state park can enjoy fishing, hiking and viewing coastal scenery. Board and body surfing is recommended for experts only due to underwater rocks and strong currents. Swimming should be attempted only when the water is extremely still which is normally during the summer months. Winter tends to bring the highest surf and most dangerous conditions.
