Walk on Bellows sand and you'll get hooked big time. If you're authorized to stay at this first class military recreational center you are indeed blessed. There just is no better place on Oahu. The water is safe and lovely...gentle enough for kids, yet enough action packed for older boogie boarders. The cabins may not be 4-star, but hey...they're 30...

Did a last minute reservation to Bellows Air Station Lodging. While the beach is one of the most pristine beaches on the East side of Oahu it is extremely difficult to get a room at the new lodging at Bellows. After repeated calls over the course of a week, I had lucked out and got a room in the new...

We have stayed at Bellows since 1977 at least every year and now twice. It has always been a rewarding experience for all of us friends and family alike. I am retired military . We have not had a bad day at Bellows.

My friend who is enlisted in the Navy booked us a condo at Bellows and I was a bit apprehensive about the stay here as many of the pictures posted made the rooms seem less than appealing. Well to my surprise the condos are absolutely amazing. Very modern and clean, and equipped with almost everything you would need to enjoy...

Staying here with my Aunt who has the military ID so we can stay here. Very nicely appointed cabins and right on a secluded beach in Oahu. So much nicer that going to Waikiki Beach that is nothing but tourists on holiday. This is a relaxing place worth at least 5 days. The site faces east and you will enjoy...

Even if you do not have a military ID to gain entrance to Bellows main area, the beaches before the military gate are accessible by the public. These beaches are some of the most beautiful on the island. Great picture taking location.

We stayed in a waterfront duplex cabin on our second visit to Bellows. The accommodations are nothing fancy, and are a bit worn out. This is the kind of place you go to if you want to enjoy the beach, the water and just not doing much of anything. We loved every minute of our time there. There is a...

Cabins are cozy and clean~ The beach is absolutely beautiful... Military families can enjoy a GREAT rate for the weekend~ We stayed here in September of 2015, the weather was stuffy earlier that day but cooled off nicely at night. We are spoiled to our Louisiana AC units, so I wasn't sure how we would handle no COLD air at...

I went to Bellows for the first time last summer and since I booked late I could only reserve a "Camper cabin" which has no electricity and basically just has some foam beds. In that case it was basically just camping with a solid structure to sleep in. I arrived late at night the first night and literally went straight...

These are very basic, no frills beach cottages. They have a fully stocked kitchen, TV/DVD player, free Wi-Fi, beds with linens, and minimal room service. But these are outdated and old. We often have ants and little spiders, but we've stayed in the cabins 2 times and keep returning! Why? Because the beach cannot be beat. And the cabins are...
