Oahu Beaches to Visit During Your Trip
Easily the biggest draw to Hawaii is the stunning beaches. Those planning a trip to any of the islands are furiously planning which beaches they will find and where they will spend their days relaxing. Each island has its hidden beaches and the handful that are a must during a getaway, but it tends to be the hidden beaches and off the beaten path destinations that reveal the parts of Hawaii that everyone desires.
As the most visited of all Hawaiian Islands, Oahu features the most activities and tours, top things to do, and some of the most famous beaches in Hawaii. Located all over the island, these incredible beaches are remarkable and spending a day at any will be one of the best days that you spend in Hawaii. Some of these beaches are not too far from Waikiki, while others require a bit of a trek and some searching. No matter what, the destination will be worth it.
Swing around the island’s South Shore and you’ll find Waimanalo Beach Park, a popular stop for those heading around the island or looking for an escape from the crowds. Waimanalo might be the best beach in Hawaii that few know about, and after you’ve spent time beneath the Ironwood Trees, relaxing on the soft white sand, and enjoying the ocean, you’ll see why.
You’ve certainly seen Waimea Bay while gazing at pictures of Hawaii. The iconic shape of the bay, the huge rock that sits next to the shore (and is great for jumping), and the surfing makes this a great spot to enjoy a day. Though the surf is only up during the winter, Waimea is a great option for a day at the beach.
Ala Moana Beach
Found just outside of Waikiki, Ala Moana is a popular hangout for locals and visitors, where the water is calm and the views are spectacular. The water is great for swimming and kids love this beach. If you walk the paths of Magic Island, located with the beach park, you will find a protected cove that is the perfect place for families and small children to hang out.
More of a locals beach, Sand Beach Park is located right next to the Halona Blowhole and the lookout, and is notable for its close shore breaks and high winds. Boogie boarding is extremely popular here but caution should be exercised when entering the water.
The name says it all. Sunset Beach is noted for its winter surf but is most well-known for the breathtaking sunsets that are found year round. Enjoy a day or evening at Sunset Beach, watching the sun dip below the horizon while you enjoy a fresh bowl of Poke and the perfect weather.
