My daughter raved about this beach so I had to find it to see what she was talking about. You have to park in a residential area to access this beach and it was well worth hunting for a parking spot. The beach is beautiful - we only wished the weather was nicer (it was windy and sprinkling) so that... More

Beautiful beach with clean and super sandy shores. We rented a house right on this beach, and were met by welcome locals, and a clean shore. It's busy in the morning with people taking walks and with pets. Many people windsurf here, but there's a spot sectioned off for swimming. Respect that this beach is in a residential area, and...

Not sure if I've ever been to a nicer beach before. Quite a treat to be able to find this place although parking n stuff was kinda tricky. Definitely worth it and nice to beat all the hustle and bustle @ Waikiki beach. I loved this beach and would love to someday come back.

We have been here several times and every time we come it's like stepping into paradise. The calm clear water is warm and relaxing and the views are amazing with the off shore islands and surrounding homes. The last time we were there was a camera crew filming models for an upcoming calendar. Now that was fun! Oahu has so... More

This place is wonderful and not too crowded. There are restrooms and an outdoor shower to rinse the sand and seawater off.

Do you want to know what it's like to sit on a beach in front of a multi million dollar home? If so this beach is for you. I love this beach. It is so relaxing and beautiful. I visited Waikiki a number of times on my last visit to Hawaii and each time I though if these people only... More

Wow! This beach was such a delight to visit and take a swim in for our first time in Hawaii's waters. We found an easy park on the street and walked down a little narrow path to the beach opening. How refreshing! It was a perfect day for it. Oh, and I noticed Lanikai and Kailua have lots of bicycle... More

This is definitely my favorite beach in Hawaii. White sand and clear blue waters to just relax. No facilities. Parking only in the street but usually it is not really difficult to find a spot.

Love this beach, especially for photo taking. Im a total sucker for the gorgeous clear turquoise color. Don't ever remember not being greeted by rain there, but it always passes. Parking has always been challenging, as it is in a strictly residential area. You must find a space on one of the side streets (using caution not to block driveways,... More
