Watch for jellyfish... otherwise best boogie boarding!!! Beautiful location! Lots of beach, never too crowded. Cabins for staying the night are amazing and perfect location!

We were able to go onto Bellows Beach because our son is an army officer, but it is open to the public on the weekend. It had the best sand we found on the island and there was hardly anyone there. Loved it!

The sites from this beach are astounding. Everywhere you gaze presents a new and wonderful experience. The beach is exceptionally clean and it is not congested. Patrons are very kind and the overall mood is very relaxing.

Hidden on a remote Air Force Station, this beach is pristine. Yes, you need a DoD ID for access. There are cabins to rent and a small BX for provisions. I did not stay in a cabin, just stopped by to see the view. Camping...More

This beach was recommended to me by a fellow military spouse as one of the best kept secrets in Hawaii. She wasn't kidding, this beach is gorgeous. It is definitely worth a visit. We went on a weekend day in the summer and found that...More

As long as you are willing to endure different people from all walks of life possibly walking through your ceremony, you should be good to go.

If your son has his military ID/CAT card, then he can act as your sponsor and escort you onto the base. Depending upon the threat level, you may also need to show ID (driver's license or passport), but usually that isn't... More
