Waialae Beach

Waialae Beach

Description

Located next to the Waialae Country Club, this gorgeous beach is just a short drive from the chaos of Waikiki, making it the perfect retreat for those looking to avoid the crowds.

AT A GLANCE:

HIGHLIGHTS: When you set foot onto this gorgeous stretch of beach, you won't even know you're just four miles from Waikiki. It is quiet and peaceful, with plenty of space for sunning, picnics, or throwing a Frisbee. The grassy park area is extensive, and the beach, although narrow in some parts, winds around the coast for quite a ways.

ACTIVITIES: Swimming, sunning, picnics, snorkeling, running also a great place to string up a hammock!

LIFEGUARD: NO

WARNINGS!: Shallow reef and strong currents use caution when swimming.

AMENITIES: Restrooms, parking, shower

Kahala is a wealthy area of Honolulu, and the road leading to this tranquil beach park is lined with flowers on both sides. There is a canal that divides the park and beach into two sides, connected by a bridge. The park features a huge grassy area on either side of the canal with picnic tables, benches, a sidewalk that winds along the canal, and an abundance of shade and palm trees. To the left, there's a row of picnic tables under a trellised "roof," which is covered with vines and foliage and creates a picturesque, beachfront pavilion.

Although this beach is always much quieter than many of the surrounding beaches, on the weekends it gets fairly busy with local families coming to the park for picnics, swimming, etc. If the parking lot is full, you can also park along the side of the road or down some of the side streets.

Be sure to notice the epic banyan tree at the entrance to the parking lot!
