Hawaii reeks of wonderful beaches and we've been to many and ejoyed them all. But, Waimanalo has one of the best as far as the most beautiful 'azure' aqua colored water to behold. Waimanalo Beach, is one of the longest white sand beaches on Oahu. The entire beach is over three miles long, but the portion of it fronting the park is approximately three-quarters of a mile long. The beach is wide, and the ocean bottom slopes gently to overhead depths across a series of shallow sandbars. Small, one-to two-foot high trade wind-generated surf breaks on the sandbars all year round. The best part we love is finding lots of shade on a very hot day, where you can sit, sleep or read a book at your leisure. The trees are awesome and of course, the place is not as crowded as other beaches.
