I lived on Oahu for 2 years so have been to just about every beach on the island. I have also traveled the Caribbean extensively and all of the Hawaiian islands, and in all of my travels I have never been able to find a beach I loved as much as this one. The sand is so fine and the... More

I've been to five of the Hawaiian Islands, and this is the prettiest Beach I have seen there. Right on Oahu!

The sites from this beach are astounding. Everywhere you gaze presents a new and wonderful experience. The beach is exceptionally clean and it is not congested. Patrons are very kind and the overall mood is very relaxing.

Hidden on a remote Air Force Station, this beach is pristine. Yes, you need a DoD ID for access. There are cabins to rent and a small BX for provisions. I did not stay in a cabin, just stopped by to see the view. Camping is also allowed. Definitely an awesome place to escape from the hustle of Waikiki.

This beach was recommended to me by a fellow military spouse as one of the best kept secrets in Hawaii. She wasn't kidding, this beach is gorgeous. It is definitely worth a visit. We went on a weekend day in the summer and found that it wasn't too crowded at all. Bellows Air Force Station is its own little oasis!... More

If you have the option to stay at Bellows AFB, TAKE IT!! Not only is it one of the most affordable places on the island, its also one of the most practical. Most hotels will run you $100- up a night. This dose not include parking fees and resort fees, both of which can cost you 2 times more than... More

Beautiful day at the beach! Sand was clean surf was beautiful turquoise color! Covered patio with picnic tables. Showers to rinse off the sand worked well. Must be with AF member to enter.

Plenty of surf and clean beaches. Military keeps the beach very clean and accessible. Military operations can result in some beach closures and you cannot plan for this. Plenty of beach to visit and a good place to visit. If you are visiting military and staying for a while, plan ahead and reserve a cabin or cinder block house on... More

basically a continuation of Waimanalo beach. This beach is open to the public on the weekends ONLY. It is posted closed from 0800 Monday to 1200 Friday for military training. This is a great beach if the folks who visit would clean up after themselves. There isn't a lot of trash, but enough that it detracts from what could possibly... More

Bellows Beach is one of the jewel of Oahu, lovely sand and turquoise water. Although I love Bellows Beach and have been going there for many years we had some very unpleasant experience with some angry "campers" who resented the fact that we were laying on the beach in front of what they think is their own property. Remember this... More
