Kailua Beach Park

Reviewed By Vladimiramirela - Mississauga, Canada

For less experienced and brave swimmers, this is a perfect setting. Close to washroom facilities, with lots of parking within convenient distance and many shaded spots under the trees, this beach offers enough room for everybody to sit or walk around, without feeling crowded, even during the weekend days. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, with nearby rock formations, and amazingly turquois water. As the slope into the waves is not too steep, even when the ocean is pretty rough, swimming is quite safe. The villages of Kailua and nearby Lanikai also offer many places to eat, have a good coffee or browse for souvenirs. Excellent location!

Makapu'u Beach

Stretching more than 1,000 yards of sandy shoreline, this spot is considered the premier bodysurfing beach in Hawaii.

Enjoyed body surfing the big waves and exploring the area surrounding the beach, water shoes are a must.

Reviewed By Scubaluvr - Coto de Caza, United States

Had a great afternoon at this beach. Cannot imagine how crowded it must be in the summer. Hard to get parking in the side roads. Take an umbrella for shade. Nice for the day

Kokololio Beach Park

Reviewed By 646lorit - Dawsonville, United States

We stayed in a guest home near this beach, so we were fortunate to be able to stroll the beach at sunrise, watching the waves break near shore. It is stunning. The white sandy beach is easy to walk, and I found some interesting wave polished stones, coral, and even a sand dollar. One morning we saw an endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal just basking in the sun on the beach. Unfortunately, like other beaches on Oahu, this beach has a certain amount of trash brought in by the ocean or left by the homeless people. Still, I recommend this beautiful beach which is much less crowded than others.

This is a beautiful family-friendly beach with restrooms & outside showers to rinse off. Parking is limited, so you may have to wait a few minutes for someone to leave. I would definitely recommend this beach :)

Kaiona Beach Park

Reviewed By MikeH305 - Phoenix, United States

This park has parking but if you don't know it is here you will drive right past. The beach is not crowded. Locals were here when we came and they said it is normally quiet like when we were there. The reason I stopped is because the set for Magnum PI is just up the road so I was able to see the breakwater that was used many times on the set. Nice sandy beach and greenish blue water with Rabbit Island out across the sea.
