Kahalu’u Beach Park is a great place to snorkel and surf. It’s easily accessible and full of sea life. The south end of the bay is fairly shallow and protected from ocean currents by an ancient breakwater. Green sea turtles chew away on the sea bottom, occasionally surfacing for air. Walk just north of the park and visit the historic St. Peter’s Catholic Church (“Painted Church”), the Little Blue Church, and Ku’emanu Heiau—the surfer temple. In ancient times, only chiefs were allowed to surf. Here, chiefs would pray and make offerings to ensure good waves.
