The Kakaako Gateway Park is one of Honolulu's most relaxing areas. Nestled next to the waterfront near Ward Warehouse, this beautiful six acre park is home to expansive fields of green and a play area that is absolutely perfect for families with children. The park is one of the more popular locations in Honolulu for outdoor weddings, since it's both scenic and somewhat secluded. It goes right on up to the edge of the water, but there is no sandy beach to be enjoyed here, just rocks. Still, while this may hinder some beachfront activities, fishing is certainly alive and well. It's easy to cast off from the shore here and quickly be plumbing relatively deep waters where sizable fish can be caught. If you are tired of digging sand from every crevice on your body, but still want to spend some time near the beach, bring a picnic and enjoy the grassy waterfront at Kakaako Park.
