If you have a military ID/DoD CAC, this is a must visit on Oahu. Beautiful, clean beaches, store, Subway, gas, mini golf, etc. Gorgeous water, great swimming if the wind isn't blowing too hard. Boogie boarding, fishing, cabins, camping.....super place.

Gorgeous beach. Man of wars in water & on beach on windy days so be careful. They can cause a painful sting and, in some, lead to a life threatening reaction. Do not leave any valuables in your car.

I was so sad to see such a beautiful place so full of garbage! Why can’t people clean up after themselves?!! Myself and another three lady picked up lots of trash. But there was still so much more!!! Free parking and not real crowded.
