I love Waimanelo Beach. My favorite on the Windward side of Oahu. If your feeling an itch to get out of Waikiki-you can have this beach to yourself during the week. On the weekends you will have to share with the locals and their families tossing a football or cooking out on the grills supplied by the park. Don't be afraid of the pine trees-once you get past them all you will see is miles of sandy beach, a great view of rabbit island, and the sparkling blue waves coming towards you.
