Luana Kai is by the sea and between Luana Kai and the ocean is a huge grassy park. Waipuilani Park is approximately 20 acres. The accompanying images give a hint of just how big this park is. You can step out of your condo and stroll this park at any time but naturally dawn and dusk are the best times. This is a (state-or-county) park so you may see locals walking their dogs, an occasional family picnic and at the far end is a public bathroom and parking lot. There are 6 public use regulation tennis courts here. If you enjoy tennis you may be able to join a game with a lone player.
You may also enjoy Frisbee, picnics or flying your own kite. In years past the far end of the park was used frequently by stunt kite flyers and you might still catch a few plying the winds above the majestic palms.
Throughout the year kite surfers and windsurfers can be seen frolicking on waves, zipping by or jumping quite high into the air. From here to North Kihei's Sugar Beach is one of the best places for windsurfers in the entire world. You can spend time simply enjoying their florescent colors dancing on the deep blue.
The far end of the park is also where local fisherman walk far out on the shallow reef to catch fish. At sunset it almost appears that they are walking on water and sometimes their dogs will follow them to be part of a perfect picture.

The park is perfect for children though they should always be supervised as the ocean is close by. They will probably want to look for some shells. You can bring buckets and shovels to play in the sand.
