Southeast Shore Oahu Beaches

including beach description and facilities

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

Many of Hawaii's most beautiful, secluded beaches are located along the Southeast Shore. Surf tends to be high in this area during the summer months. Beware of Box Jellyfish that swarm ashore 7-11 days after a full moon. 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!

Beautiful, remote spot at the base of Diamond Head crater. Small strip of sand, swimming is fair due to coral in the water. Snorkeling good if surf is calm. Great place to watch windsurfers. From the parking area, look for an opening in the wall and take the unpaved path down to the beach.

Sandy Beach Photo Sandy Beach

When surf is low, great beach for swimming. When surf is high, treacherous due to rip currents and shorebreak. Heaven for experienced bodysurfers. Dangerous rip tide in front of Keawaakio Cove, even during calm surf, do not swim here! Outcropping of lava where waves can pound you into rocks around the Point. Check with lifeguard for swimming conditions before entering the water. Heed all posted warnings! On cloudy days it's likely it will be sunny here. Trade winds keep it comfortable, wear plenty of sunblock. On windy days you may get sandblasted!
