The beach was practically deserted the day we visited. It's a lovely beach to walk on. We parked on Laumilo Street and accessed the beach on one of many public pathways between houses.

This was probably my favourite beach in Oahu. Oahu has a lot of great but this one probably has the nicest blue water. And not too crowded as well. Would recommend a visit here!

We stayed a block away from entrance into Waimanalo beach. Very beautiful, fun to jump the waves and boogie board, and very few people. Love this side of the island!
