Ulehawa Beach Park is a white sand beach located adjacent to Farrington Highway on Oahu's leeward coast. The beach is beautiful, with few crowds compared to other beaches along the Waianae coast. Here you can enjoy the sunshine and waves anywhere along the expansive stretch of shoreline. Ulehawa is ideal for the sunset, which easily viewed from this westward-facing beach. If you are around in the late afternoon, stay and watch as the sun dips below the horizon.

Ulehawa was a settlement site for ancient Hawaiians dating back to the 1500s. Not much remains from the settlement, but take care not to disturb any remnant ruins or stones.

Parking is located in dirt pullouts along the southbound side of Farrington Highway. There are public restrooms available for use as well.
