This is one of the best beaches on Oahu and you no longer need military ID to get to the beach. They have cabins to rent but these are so busy they are booked at least a year in advance. Last time there I saw homeless have moved in so it probably won't be long till they make a mess... More

Located on Oahu's windward coast, Bellows Beach is noted for its clear, azure blue waters, soft white sand and waves ideal for bodyboarding. Many people would consider it one of the prettiest beaches on the island. The beach is backed by rows of ironwood trees, which provide plenty of shade in the afternoons. Access to this beach requires showing a... More

Clear water you can see to the ocean floor for a couple feet. Beautiful sand. Picturesque sunsets and awesome photography.

Off and on the location is over run by homeless makeshift camps, tents, and shopping carts. The area can go from pristine to that of a big urinal that hasn't been flushed in weeks. Major problem that needs addressing.

Walk on Bellows sand and you'll get hooked big time. If you're authorized to stay at this first class military recreational center you are indeed blessed. There just is no better place on Oahu. The water is safe and lovely...gentle enough for kids, yet enough action packed for older boogie boarders. The cabins may not be 4-star, but hey...they're 30... More

I'm not a beach person for a number of reasons - been to sand spits the world over, but Bellows Air Station beach was absolutely spectacular. I've been to Oahu three times and have always enjoyed the view of the water from many places, but to stand in the surf at Bellows on a clear day and see the expanse... More

I've been to Oahu so many times and I can't believe I've never been here! My last visit to Oahu I decided to stop by this beach since we were in the Waimanalo area. PROS: Location: Bellows Field Beach Park is located on the east side of the Island. It is one of three beaches on the Waimanalo Bay. This... More

We had a great time sunning and walking at the Bellows Beach. The beach was clean and the water was beautiful. With great views of the islands and mountains this is a super beach to spend the day.

We were invited with dear friends who retired from Air Force to join them for 2 weeks in this lovely place. We were told the accomodations are "nothing fancy". Between us, we shared a duplex about 100 yards from the beach, 2 bedrooms & 1 bath each. Every morning we woke up to the MOST spectacular sunrise! Breathtakingly quiet except... More

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.
