Sand Island State Recreation Area



UPDATE: 1/26/21 - Comfort stations including the bathrooms at Sand Island are currently CLOSED due to a failed sewer line. There are two outdoor showers still working. Comfort stations will remain closed for several months while the sewer lines are repaired. We are in the process of acquiring portable toilets for public use but they are not on-site yet.

9/10/20 - Sand Island State Recreation Area is OPEN.

Sand Island State Recreation Area offers weekends-only shoreline camping within a heavily industrialized area very close to the urban core of Honolulu and the flight path of the Honolulu International Airport. This park is also adjacent to the Sand Island Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) day use riding area, which contains tracks and trails for motorized OHV’s and non-motorized BMX bikes.

Sand Island is an arid, urban coastal park which offers picnicking, camping, walking, shore fishing and board surfing. It fronts a small sand beach and has good views of Honolulu Harbor and ocean sunsets. (14.0 acres)
