Access to Kaluahole is via Makalei Park, which rests on one side, and Leahi Beach Park on the other. Behind it looms Diamond Head State Monument, and to the east is the Diamond Head Lighthouse, both furtastic attractions to visit while you and Fido are in the neighborhood. Another solution for a need to wander is the walkway at the base of the rock seawall facing the ocean, which leads to Leahi Beach Park. While Kaluahole doesn't have its own parking area, chances are good you'll find a spot in Makalei or Leahi's lot, or on the street.
Doggos love sharing picnics with their humans, and Kaluahole features a grassy area with tables and benches where you can sit under a tree, gaze out at the at the calm water inside the Tonggs surfbreak, and the sea beyond. You and the pup can picnic on the beach as well. While it features restrooms, this beach doesn't provide drinking water, so be sure to bring pawlenty, and don't forget the clean up bags for Fido. While your pup is allowed anywhere on the beach, be sure to keep the leash on.
This is not the beach for a long, leisurely swim, but you and the fur buddy can cool off with a splash, although care must be taken not to slip on the rocky bottom. The steep beach, which drops 7 feet to the shore, is not altogether pawrfect for a run on packed sand, but a walk with your furry wing-dog is possible and furtastic!
In contrast to busy Waikiki Beach just a few miles up the coast, Kaluahole is the place for serene sitting and peaceful strolls. If this is what you and Fido are looking for, perhaps after a busy day of sightseeing or working, it's the spot for you!
