Bellows Beach

Bellows Beach

Bellows Beach is actually on the Bellows Air Force Station but is open to the public on weekends. There is a nice sandy beach and some picnic facilities.

Bellows Field Beach Park is one of the more popular ocean recreation areas on Oahu. Watch out for jellyfish on the beach. They are tiny and look like sea-foam but stink like a bee. [PORTUGUESE MAN-OF-WAR] During the Summer it can get crowded with swimmers, beginning surfers, body surfers and campers. It has shallow waters and a small consistent shore break. Surfing is not allowed in the area between the two lifeguard towers. This beach is a great place to practice surfing and body boarding, just stay out of the swimming area.
