Heʻeia State Park, also known as Keʻalohi Point, is an 18-acre peninsula located on Oʻahu's windward (east) coast, on the waterfront of Kāneʻohe Bay. Visitors and locals alike have been drawn to the windward side of Oʻahu for its lush gardens, beautiful beaches and bays, and for the many sites that have preserved and perpetuated native Hawaiian culture. Its location makes Heʻeia State Park the ideal place to take in the idyllic settings of Oʻahu's windward coast and enjoy the diverse marine life of Kāneʻohe Bay.
Kāneʻohe Bay features Oʻahu’s only barrier reef, which ensures that the bay is not subject to open ocean swell and current. Because of the specific depth, temperature, and conditions of this protected water, coral is able to grow much more abundantly, which translates into a greater variety of sea life. Kāneʻohe Bay is known for calm waters, spectacular reefs, and stunning views of the Koʻolau Mountains.
