This was an awesome beach to go to. Much quieter than the Waikiki side of things. We are military so it was a perfect retreat from the crazy speed of life sometimes.

If you have a military ID this is a great beach. There is a shopette with a subway and gas station. Also a food truck which served great food. Showers and bathrooms also. Again. If you have a military ID this is an excellent beach. Super soft sand.

I would have to say this was my favorite beach in oahu. We went there 3 times in 14 days. The beach is divided into two parts, military and public. My son is in the military, so we went there twice, not crowded, good boogie boarding waves and the bathrooms were clean (unlike other beaches we went to). We went... More

I'm not one for crowded beaches, so this was absolutely perfect. Well worth the 30 minute drive from Waikiki. There is awesome scenery driving along the coast on the way to this beach. The water is bluer than blue and also very calm, safe for a toddler. A previous review stated there were no lifegaurds here. Not true, as we... More

It is right on an air-force and Marine barrack off the beaten path on the left side of Oahu. We stopped there based on some other travelers reviews and they were spot on. White sandy beaches, calm water where it was safe for my 6 year to play. No lifeguards was my only concern but then again it was very... More

Bellows Beach is just perfect. It's clearly popular with locals and it's just far enough out of the way that visitors won't find it unless they know to look. Clean sand and easy water make it family friendly. You can camp there too but it's only open on weekends as it forms part of Bellows Field Airforce Base.

Except for weekends/holidays, this beach can be "all yours" with the exception of a few people walking along. Clean, golden sand,beautiful water and scenic view. I did see people walking their dogs on the beach but I never encountered any "doggie do" so please if you visit, keep it that way.

Our family loves this quite beach! It is on a military facility but a couple days a week it's open to the public. Even on those days it's never crowded. The water is clear, the waves just right even on a windy day. There's also shade if you want it & restroom & shower facilities. It truly is a paradise.... More
