What to Bring


Snorkeling and Surf

  • Check a live webcam at neighboring Kamaole II Beach Park here.
  • Kam III is one of the better locations among the Kamaole Beach Parks for snorkeling. The southern end of the beach has rocky areas that are home to colorful fish and marine life, making it a popular spot for snorkelers.
  • On calm mornings, stand-up paddle boarding is a great option at Kam III. The long stretch of all 3 Kamaole beaches to the north make for a beautiful paddle. Just be aware that the wind can pick up strongly and quickly from late morning through the day, so the earlier you go out the better. 
  • There can be some elevated surf with summer south swells. This will impede snorkeling but can sometimes make for fun boogie boarding. Just be sure to exercise plenty of caution, and if in doubt, don’t go out!

  • It’s important for visitors to respect the local rules and regulations, including not touching or damaging the coral, not collecting or harassing marine life, and not disturbing the natural habitat.
