Waimanalo Bay & Beach – The Best on Oahu

Looking for a place to get away from the crowded beaches of Waikiki? Longing for a beach not lined with luxury hotels and looks more like the ‘real’ Hawaii on the island of Oahu? Wanting to stay out of the coral and spend your time on a sandy beach? Then Waimanalo Bay & Beach is just the place for you.

If it sounds like I am gushing about Waimanalo Beach, you’re right – I am. Over our last several visits this sandy beach located just south of Waimanalo is the perfect place to kick back, relax and enjoy a Hawaiian beach. Not to mention, there is a L&L Restaurant in the town of Waimanalo – grab some for lunch before you head to the beach!

When you enter the Waimanalo Recreation area, you know you are just a little bit off the beaten path. Winding down the access road to the beach area, you are engulfed in trees and lush surroundings of the public beach and recreation area.

Finally, once you get to the beach – you will find it relatively uninhabited and you can have your choice of spots to enjoy the sun’s rays and the waves. If you want to get out of the sun, there is plenty of shade cover off the beach, including park benches and BBQ pits if you want to have a cook out.

The sand is pristine and comfortable and the waves are great for body-surfing and boogie-boarding. Both the kids and adults alike will enjoy this beach!
