We were stationed at Kaneohe back in the early 70's. Went to this beach numerous times and stayed in the cabins back in the 90's after retirement. We are going back this coming Oct for 10 glorious days. Best anywhere in the world.

A very pretty beach. Only open to the public on weekends because it is on a military reservation. If you have a military ID you can use it during the week. The cabins and condos are available for rent to Military and DoD personnel including retired Military and DoD civilians.

One of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen. It also has nice shade and bathroom facilities. The water was calm enough for the little ones to swim in as well. You can see the Makapu'u lighthouse and the mokes. Parking is not an issue. However, this beach is closed during the week so plan ahead.

We stayed in the cabins for two nights and found it concerning.... there was a queen bed and then a twin bunk bed. That's it, but what was expected as this is just a cabin with no electricity/water/furniture- except the beds. We were able to get sheets and pillowcases at check in. The cabin was dirty with what looked like... More

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
