Ma'ili Beach Park is situated along Oahu's western shore right off of Farrington Highway. The beach is long and boasts beautiful white sand with plenty of parking in the adjacent parking lots.

The park is spacious with numerous picnic tables, an outdoor workout area, and plenty of green space. Camping is allowed with a permit at any of the designated 12 campsites, which can fill up fast. Especially on weekends and during summer months, families, tents, and barbecues spring up all around the park. If you bring charcoal, designated disposal pits are located all around the park.

Surfing is popular off the northern section of the beach, where the Ma'ili'ilii stream enters the ocean. Public restrooms and freshwater rinse showers are available for use.

Dangerous surge and currents can be present, especially during winter months. Check wave conditions before entering the water.

The south area of the park, at Maili Point has some calmer surf and seems less busy.

Doesn't seem to be very busy, either. Lovely, beautiful beach!
