Barbers Point Beach Park
If you're planning a beach day, Barber's Point isn't the beach for you. However if you want to fish, see the lighthouse, or happen to be in the Kapolei area, it is definitely worth a visit.
AT A GLANCE:
Located adjacent to an industrial area in Kapolei, Barbers Point Beach Park has a narrow, rocky beach and dangerous currents that make it unsuitable for swimming. The main attraction here is the lighthouse, which sits off to the right side. It is also a popular spot for fishing.
ACTIVITIES: Fishing, ball games, photographing lighthouse
WARNINGS!: Be sure to lock your vehicle, and don't leave anything valuable in sight. Be aware that swimming or doing anything in the water is not recommended here due to the rocky shoreline and dangerous currents.
AMENITIES: Parking, showers, restrooms
Swimming is not recommended here, due to strong currents, a dangerous shorebreak, and a rock and reef-lined shore. If you stop by, you'll most likely see several people with numerous fishing poles set up along the beach. Due to the narrow beach and lack of nice sand, it's not the best place for laying out and catching sun, although there is ample grassy space perfect for picnics or ball games.
