Oahu Pictures - Pokai Beach
Oahu Pictures - Pokai Beach - Along the sun-drenched shores of western Oahu, south of the Waianae Boat Harbor, is Poka’i Bay. The bay is named after a Hawaiian voyaging Chief, Poka’i, who is believed to have brought the first coconut palm to the island. Poka’i Bay boons a crescent shaped ribbon of golden white sand. It serves as a nice place to stop for a break on your way to Oahu's upper west side.
There is a large break wall and a small jetty on the southern end of the bay that creates an excellent place for swimming and sun-bathing. With extremely calm waters it is also great place for kids.
There may be some snorkeling opportunities at the north end of Pokai Beach where the Kaupuni Stream flows into the ocean, but this bay is definitely more suited to swimming and relaxing. It is also a good spot if you’re into stand up paddling as the reef generates the softest gentlest waves to ride. Poka'i Bay is bordered along the south by Kane'ilio Point where you will find the Ku'ilioloa Heiau.
