Hookipa offers good waves year-round and is a favorite among advanced surfers and windsurfers. During winter, waves can reach heights of 30 feet and definitely should only be braved by the most experienced surfers. The beach also features a protected area for honu (sea turtles), where many come ashore to sleep at night. Although the beach closes at 7 pm, you still have a good chance of spotting a few right before sunset. If you are taking the Road to Hana, Hookipa Beach is also a quick and easy stop along the way.
