Secluded Cove (Ka'ena Point - Hike or 4WD)

Wai'anae Coast

Makua Beach (at end of highway 930)

Yokohama Beach (at end of highway 930)

Windward Side

Windy Beach (must hike to beach across Kahuku golf course near Turtle Bay Resort)

Goat Island Beach (must swim or kayak to island from shore)

Saint Cloud...

Waimanalo Bay Recreation Area & Bellows Beach. Bellows Beach is open to the public on weekends. Waimanalo Bay Recreation Area beach is right next to the entrance to Bellows.

Malaekahana State Recreation Area. This is about 1 mile past Laie (toward Kahuku). It is the beach where you can get to Goat Island.

In Waikiki, Sans Souci Beach is usually not crowded. This is the beach near the Waikiki Aquarium.

Ala Moana Beach Park has a lot of space & is not crowded (except for parking).

In the mornings (before 10am), most of the beaches away from Waikiki are fairly empty. This includes Waimea Beach & Sunset Beach both on the north shore. After 10am, its hard to find parking at Waimea.
