Clean and not crowded
Jun 2021
I went here as part of an Airbnb experience. It's not crowded and I think it's better than Waikiki beach. It's quite clean as well.

Beautiful!!

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous beach. Not for beginner swimmers though!! Would never let a kid in that ocean. But if you are an advanced swimmer enjoy the waves and the view. Even if you don’t swim it’s just beautiful. You can see the islands and mountains in background and bluest water I have ever seen. It is also not crowded and has restrooms. I do think since it’s not very touristy to be extra mindful and respectful to the place and not ruin this for the locals by being an idiot and littering or using a speaker too loudly or just going in with no swimming abilities.

Great beach!

Pretty pretty beach! I like that there is a good amount of parking! Water is beautiful and the waves are fun! You can see the military helicopters throughout the day too! I also noticed lots of ghost crabs crawling around! They were fun to watch too!

I’ve been to many beaches around the world and Waimanalo is one of the most beautiful and clean beaches I’ve been to. Definitely worth a stop. Not crowded. Beautiful sand.

Breathtakingly beautiful

On a solo trip to find myself, the valet at my hotel recommended this peaceful beach on the east coast of Oahu. Do not be alarmed by the massive tent camp along side the entrance. The beach is calm and has clean facilities. It doesn’t get the same foot traffic as Lanikai beach so you are more likely to have a peaceful beach day with calm waters and smooth white sand.

Unoccupied beach

This beach must go for miles!!! And would be fun to boogie board the waves. And it was hardly populated. Maybe due to potential man o war stings, which one of our kids got. (There are signs posted of this risk. The Lifeguard said rinse with water an it will go away in 20min. It lasted a bit longer but wasn’t hurting past the hour. Still he didn’t get back in)
Other teens played for almost 2 hours at this beach. If it wasn’t so windy it would have been very relaxing.

(There are about 15-20 tent homes at the entrance to this beach. Signs posted to keep your valuables with you. Restrooms were disgusting and toilets didn’t seem to flush, but at least there is room to change).

Rinsing station and some tables in shaded trees off of the water. Gorgeous blue water even on cloudy day

Picture perfect

We went on a Tuesday morning and it wasn’t crowded and the white soft sand continued as far into the water as we could walk out. It didn’t seem real! A dream day on the beach was all we could hope for- this beach was definitely a highlight of the trip.

Has a parking lot where you do see a homeless encampment. However they do not SEEM to bother anyone during the day.... The beach was pristine and we enjoyed the beauty. Definitely worth a stop during the day. Would not camp here.

Best beach in Oahu
Dec 2020 • Couples
I thought Cancun had some nice beaches here and there. Boy, was I wrong.

Waimanalo Beach has soft white sand, warm waters depending on the season, fun waves, and isn’t as crowded as other beaches.

It’s super accessible and you’ll thoroughly enjoy relaxing here.
