He’eia State Park
The view of the bay was not bad, but that is true of most of Hawaii since the islands and bays/oceans are so scenic. 5.17 Hawaii ratingStar
He’eia State Park guyonthego

He’eia State Park is a small park about 18 acres in size and is located on Kaneohe Bay on Oahu, HI. It is mainly a roadside park, a place you can stretch your legs, have a picnic or take a short walk along the water. As with much of Hawaii, the views of the water are beautiful (see picture at right).

He’eia Park does not have a beach per se, but does front Kaneohe Bay, so you can walk along the waterfront or go canoeing. The park has really limited facilities, mainly a meeting hall and some areas outside for picnicking. It also has quite a few stray chickens wandering around the parking lot. Actually, this is true for much of Hawaii. They pretty much rule the roost, if you will.

He’eia Park may offer guided kayak tours to Coconut Island. Call the park for more information as well as pricing and to make reservations. Tours generally are offered Monday through Saturday and leave at 9:00 AM, which is on the early side, but the early bird gets the worm as they say.

If you are in the area and want to stop by for quick view of the bay, this park has an attractive setting. It also is a reasonable choice for a picnic. Since it is free, cost issues won’t ruffle anyone’s feathers. However, if time is limited and you have a list of places to see, it will rank pretty low in the overall pecking order.
