Ko'Olina Beach Park Kapolei
#113 of 673 Outdoor Activities in Oahu
wow, wow, wow...what a lovely spot with manicured lawns leading right up to the rocky coast and the added benefit of serene and calm lagoon beaches
The beaches are great for kids, with the breakers upon entry into the lagoon, the water is typically very calm, and it's a great place to do some standup paddle boarding.
Lanikai Beach Kailua
#115 of 673 Outdoor Activities in Oahu
Everything from waterfalls and beautiful beaches to pineapple groves and delicious eats.
· What actually makes this beach unique from the rest of the beaches on Oahu and even separates it from Kailua beach is that it is protected in shallow waters shore side of the 'Nā Mokulua' Islands.

Nice calm beaches and a peninsula that has some of the best views on the South shore to watch the sunset.

Still in Kailua but a beautiful beach that is away from the usual crowds who visit Kailua or Lanikai beaches
The sunrises are beautiful and lots of beach to walk (this is even the beach the past President loves to visit on his trips to Oahu).
Mokuleia Beach Park Waialua
#192 of 673 Outdoor Activities in Oahu
:( If you are looking for something different than Waikiki or Lanikai Beaches, I highly recommend making the trip North.
Mokuleia Beach Park is a great beach for relaxing and watching kite surfers or sky divers and gliders which take off from across the street at the small airport.
Sans Souci Beach Park Honolulu
#200 of 673 Outdoor Activities in Oahu
The beaches here are quieter, so perfect for a solo beach day, or hanging out with a group of friends or family.
A lovely of all the beaches on the island as that they are free to the public and hotels thereby cannot horde properties on beach areas and limit access to paying customers.
