Least Busy Beach and a Must-See

This beach is my favourite beach in Hawaii. It's phenomenal! Super quiet, views cannot be beat, tons of shade.

This park is community run and the community appreciates privacy. While all are welcome (according to custom), it is nice for locals to have a place of their own. Try Kaupo, Waimanalo Beach Park, Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, or Bellows Beach Park.

There still exists lonely beach that is not crowded by people. Weekends are busy but come during the week and you may be the only one here. Water is turquoise and beach is white!

We made a mistake thinking it was the famous Wainamalo beach when we parked there. But this beach was amazingly beautiful and we saw many big fish right off the shore. And it was so fun to watch three paragliders right above the beach flying like birds.

This is an easy park to pass by kinda of hidden. The Magnum PI house is right there! If you can see the stone sea wall, it is where Thomas Magnum kayaked.

We were blessed to have a local take us here by chance! We were lost and he graciously offered to take us and showed us around. This place is a jewel and we're still thinking of the white sand and beautiful landscape! We had the place to ourselves, ocean on one side and mountains towering over us on the other... More

We always seem to stop for the beauty...how can you not! We don't normally swim here but want to some day. Homeless do live in the area.

Beautiful stretch of beach but don't go there on the weekends. It's crazy crowded & parking is nearly impossible.

very pretty beach, I went here for the sunrise. There were some homeless people camping on the beach but nobody caused any trouble.

Beautiful beach. Not crowded, great parking, clear water, minimal waves, very large quiet beach. There were maybe two other couples there when we visited. I am sure it has the potential to get busy, we visited in March, but you would probably never notice because it is a large beach. Will plan to visit again when we return.
