Waimanalo Beach

Waimanalo Beach

Located in the town of Waimanalo, just south of Kailua, waimanalo beach is a favorite among locals, and relatively undiscovered by tourists. It is a shame because this is one of the finest beaches on the island for swimming. The sand is wide and the beach is almost two miles long! Plus, it is conveniently located just off the highway. The waves are decent and the beach is right up against the mountains, which makes for a picturesque view. Truly a hidden gem.

This is the same beach as Bellows beach it’s just south of the air force base so its unrestricted and open to the public year round.
