Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve Honolulu

My husband and I enjoyed a morning to ourselves with a self-guilded snorkel trip at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve; it is a bit crowded as the afternoon approaches, so arrive early and enjoy incredible snorkeling in...
Although reluctant at first (fear of snorkelling) I enjoyed a most beautiful experience at Hanauma Bay - snorkelling, swimming, sun bathing and enjoying a beautiful homemade burger lunch in the park.

Kailua Beach Park Kailua
#6 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
The waters are blue, sand very white and on weekdays pretty secluded, we were there many times during the week and it was amazing, there is a park right next to it where you can make BBQ or picnic
Kailua beach park, along with neighboring Lanikai, has some of the bluest, beautiful water that you've ever seen, and for me that's considering I've been to Bora Bora, Klein Bonaire, St. John, Maui, Kauai and Berm...

Lanikai Beach Kailua
#7 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
Lanikai beach is amazing, enter at public access near Lanikai park and Canoe Hale, parking is very limited so get there early and enjoy an amazing white sand beach with a picture perfect view of the Mokolua islands.
This beach is right close to Kailua Beach Park which is another gorgeous beach but is bigger and has shaded areas!

Waimea Bay Haleiwa
#8 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
Beautiful beach with great day to jump off the famous rocks into the crystal blue water Best to get there early as parking is a premium and if you have to park up top is a fait trek to get in and out with your gear
If the Beach Park is full, you can park for free at the Catholic Church just east of the Bay - look for the large square Italianate tower - it's a landmark.

Ko'Olina Beach Park Kapolei
#10 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
The Beach Park was clean and immaculate with green grass, coconut palms on clean sand with the awesome Pacific ocean waves.
Walkway through park was super clean, picture perfect, and great for evening walks.
Pupukea Beach Park Haleiwa
#11 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
So, if you are on the North Shore, grab a late lunch, early dinner in nearby Haleiwa and then get yourself up to the shoreline at Pupukea Beach Park and settle in for the sunset of a lifetime.
We recently did a dive here in the "Cathedrals" section of the park, which was incredible.
Ka'ena Point State Park Waianae
#12 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
The walk in along the ocean was pretty amazing, but for me what made this park great is the albatross and other wildlife at the end of this hike.
If you love nature, and want to see a natural phenomenon that very, very few people ever get the opportunity to see, go to Ka’ena Point.
Sunset Beach Park Haleiwa
#13 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
This is a very fun spot, we loved lying on this amazing beach watching the waves just a gorgeous beach and park.
If you are there for sunset, this is the place to see Mother Nature at her best!

Ko Olina Lagoons Kapolei
#15 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
We took the one that had parking available, Lagoon 4. The park had green grass, bathrooms and showers, and a beautiful clean sandy beach leading to a picture perfect lagoon.
Every evening the area around the lagoons are filled with people awaiting another gorgeous nature show.

Banzai Pipeline Pupukea
#17 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
The most unique thing about Pipe is that you can park your car and walk right up to it, and see amazing waves.
It showcases the beauty of nature, and the natural environment the surf community reside in and partake of.

Sharks Cove Pupukea
#18 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
It's an off the tourist "Must see" maps of attractions located east of Waimea Water Falls, which in itself is a nice hike and nature preserve.
Located on Oahu's North Shore, this small rocky bay forms part of Pupukea Beach Park and boasts blue water and an impressive amount of sea life.

Makapu'u Beach Waimanalo
#19 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
As a bonus, there are often paragliders that jump off the cliffs behind Sea Life Park that are exciting to watch.
Bussed in to Sea Life Park and then walked down to the sparkling white sandy beach with an awesome lush surrounding.

Waimanalo Beach Waimanalo
#20 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
The best places to visit the beach in Waimanalo is Kaiona Beach Park, which is further to the south, or what we locals call "Sherwood Forest", which is across from the polo horse stables, a little to the north of...
Adding to kid-friendliness - smaller waves mean rip currents are less likely and the open nature of the beach plus Oahu’s small tidal range should see an absence of tidal currents particularly close to shore.

Lanikai Pillboxes Kailua
#22 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
One option is to drop off the family right at the trailhead, which is also somewhat hidden, and then the driver parks the car.
Another possibility is to park on the Lanikai (Alala Point) side of Kailua Beach and take a 15-20 minute walk through Lanikai on to the trailhead by Bluestone.
Spitting Cave of Portlock Honolulu

Fort DeRussy Beach Park Honolulu
#26 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
The former coastal artillery fort is now a lovely 70+ acre mixed use facility supporting various military missions, with a large green space park area that's home to a wide variety of outdoor activities.
We always stay next to the park, it is a perfect cool break from the hustle of shopping and offers great running paths for an early morning stretch or a quite place for a sit.
Lyon Arboretum Honolulu
#27 of 213 Nature & Parks in Oahu
If you love nature and want to see incredible tropical plants and trees this is the place to be.
Throughout the arboretum, you’ll see a number of birds but they're more people-wary than the ones you’ll encounter at parks.
