Waimanalo Beach

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.

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...

Tip: If you plan on going to Lanikai beach after the hike, park closer to the beach rather than the trail!
One option is to drop off the family right at the trailhead, which is also somewhat hidden, and then the driver parks the car.

Halona Blowhole Oahu, HI 8.4 km away
#46 of 218 Nature & Parks in Oahu
Getting down there is a little difficult for those who aren’t steady on their feet and if you stay close to the shore when swimming, you can enjoy the amazing waves and nature at its best.
The beach cove nearby was my favorite place to swim on all of Oahu, second only to Kailua Beach Park.

Hundreds of native plants and trees well tagged for information and a 2 mile loop to enjoy solitude, nature and the wonderful sound of birds constantly chirping.
You'll see 10 foot tall ferns, thousand of blossoms, and gardenia plants that seem to be growing gourds?! It's a natural place to see some beautiful, slightly cultivated, nature.
