Honolulu, Oahu Beaches

including beach description, and facilities


More Beaches:
Honolulu | Leeward | North Shore | Southeast | Southwest | Windward

Waikiki has some of the best swimming and surfing beaches on Oahu, but there are other beautiful beaches to visit in the Honolulu area also. Honolulu area beaches are a great place to learn to surf as the waters tend to be calmer than the North Shore. Surf boards and body boards can be rented on the beach. Hotels, shops, restaurants, free concerts and other entertainment are always near by. Beware of stinging Box Jellyfish that swarm this area's waters between 7-11 days after a full moon. Many visitors ignore the jellyfish warning signs and suffer painful stings. At any beach in Hawaii, obey warning signs, ask lifeguards about ocean conditions, keep your eye on the surf, and if you have any doubt, stay out!

Narrow, steep beach, usually very small waves, great for novice swimmers. The reef and seawalls should be approached with caution as they may be very sharp and dangerous. Best spot for snorkeling is the middle of the beach park, called Queen's Beach.
