Keep eeverything locked up. Local homeless and drug users asking for money. Would not recommend this area to anyone, except DEA

We stopped to use the restrooms and they were ok, fairly clean. We noticed lots of tables for picnics and some people had filled small portable swimming pools so there must be water spigots.

We was just driving and came to this beach park. It was a lot of fun with swings and nice beach for our young granddaughter. We just chilled out here for about 2 hours before heading out for the next beach park.

Maili Beach has a nice grassy park for soccer, football, volleyball, or some other sports. It's a little dirtier than average (some small pieces of trash but nothing big) due to the roaming homeless population, but I bring my family here all the time. The...More
