Where did all the tourists go? You will have left them behind by the time you find your way to Waimanalo Beach, Oahu's longest stretch of golden sand, with calm waves for swimming and lots of grass for just snoozing nearby a palm tree. Waimanalo is actually a collection of two county beach parks in addition to US military beachfront property that's open to the public on weekends.

One of my favorite beaches in Oahu! Long strip of white soft sandy beach and the bluest ocean water. It's nice and secluded. Great spot for body surfing. Plenty of free parking in the park's lot.

Waimanalo, God's Country--what the locals will say. My favorite part of the entire island. The beach park gets crowded and touristy, but travel up the beach a little toward Bellow's/Kailua... that's God's Country.

After going to Waikiki beach a few times, I was shocked when we walked onto Waimanalo Beach. The water was so incredibly blue and turquoise, the sand was so soft, and it was very secluded. There were hardly any other people on the beach. There were life guards on duty as well.

Beautiful and clean, Waimanalo Beach is a local spot. It's away from the busy areas, and most people that go there are locals. The strip of pale soft sand beach stretches for miles. Ocean water so blue it is unreal. There's plenty of parking in the lot, a restroom facility, a lifeguard on duty during the daytime, and some popular local restaurants right outside the entrance. After being here you may not want to go back to busy beaches like Waikiki.

Waimanalo is where the tourists are not, just the locals, on this long beach with small waves. If you don't like crowds, or like to sleep in a tent, come here and chillax against the majestic surroundings of rugged cliffs behind you, and pristine beach in front of you.
The beach is long, but not deep, but there is flat land behind it with trees for shade. It does get a bit windy on the windward side, but it is less crowded.
There is a large parking lot and facilities here.

WAIMANALO BAY and WAIMANALO BEACH is right next to Bellows Beach, another amazing beach, but Bellows is only open on weekends. Located on the East Side of Oahu, It's really one of the largest stretches of beach area on Oahu consisting of the Waimanalo beach park, Waimanalo bay, all the way up to the border with Bellows Beach and airforce base. Access to this exact part of the beach can take place at Aloiloi St next to McDonald's. You follow it to the end before the right turn and park on the side of the road or you can go past McDonald's and take the small road down Waimanalo Bay which has a huge parking lot and short walk to the beach. A short drive after that is the Bellows beach access road onto the military base and to the beach. This stretch of beach on the east side is amazing. The water is always about 80 here and the waves always about 1-2 feet, good to start out with body surfing and body boarding...There is sometimes Jellyfish that come into both Waimanalo and Bellows beach a few days after a full moon so please ck out all signs on the beach and always respect the ocean! This is a fun filled, beautiful and very safe beach to hang out and relax at for the entire family....The water and mountain views are some of the best I have ever seen...ALOHA!Recommended for:Family Travelers
