If you’re looking for the true private beach experience on Oahu, this is the spot for you! Rarely do tourists head to the west side of the island, despite its incredible beaches and lush greenery! While it’s about an hour drive from Waikiki, it’s surely worth it for the privacy. Beach permit required.
Currently not accepting permits due to COVID-19.
Situated on Oahu’s south shore, Waialae Beach neighbors Kahala Hotel & Resort. This beach can get busy on the weekends cause it’s so dang lovely! Bordered by a stream and full of incredible reef, this is a great destination for surfing, picnicking or eloping! Beach permit required.
Sunsets, sea turtles and green waters? That’s the Hawaiian experience you’ve come for, right? Hale’iwa is a great beach for spotting turtles and the green waters don’t get much more lovely than this. Swimming isn’t great here due to shallow reefs, but the views (and sunsets) are spectacular! Beach permit needed.
Big LOST fan? This is the spot for you because this is the beach where the hit TV show was filmed. This stunning beach is a great spot for your (semi) private elopement and is about as picturesque as it comes! Not always great for swimming, but you can’t beat the views! Beach permit is required.
