TOP Oahu Beaches
this one and Kailua Beach that is right next to it are totally different than all the other beaches I saw on Oahu. Those look like Maldives or Bahamas, there is just sand and water, you can find some coral reef for snorkeling but there won’t be stones and shells like on other beaches. The waves are very gentle if any.
Makua Beach (Dolphins and Privacy)
if you want privacy this is the right beach for you. I went there with my friends and there was only one more couple on the whole beach with us. It is beautiful, though waves tend to be high, and that is how I unexpectedly lost my sunglasses. On a right day you can spot dolphins there.
this one I haven’t gone as I heard there is a lot of tents with homeless people and I was advised not to go by myself. I would have gone if I had someone with me but ended up not going.

Cocroach Beach (Halona Cove)
Beautiful beach located close to Halona Blowhole Lookout where you can park and climb down to the beach. It is also right next to Koko Crater Arch Trail. Beach from first stop on the around the island tour, for me also a beach where I lost my flip-flops. climbed down, left my flip-flops in one pace, clothes in another, made some photos, went to water and then quickly grabbed tripod and clothes as we only had 15 min stop here. After 40 min ride at the next stop I realized I no longer have my flip-flops with me. That was my first thing I lost on this trip, unfortunately I lost more.
Banzai Pipeline Beach (Surfing beach)
Laniakea Beach (Turtle beach)
Another beach I went to on my around the island tour, unfortunately when we arrived it started raining and no-one found turtles. I would definitely come back and snorkel with them.
Waikiki Beach is a big one with lots of tourist so try to avoid the pink hotel and Moana Surfrider area. I sticked to the pools and the beach between the Barefoot Beach cafe and pools. I also saw the seal on the last beach (Kaimana Beach) right after the war memorial.
Let me know your favorite Oahu beaches.

Hi, my name is Joanna, I started this blog in Jan 2017. I created posts about beauty, fashion, travel, rabbits, money blogging ect. Simply put: all the stuff I care about. After 10 months I realized my blog is not getting enough traffic so I dived into research. Till Oct 2017 I only had around 700 visitors on my blog per month. Then I implemented my Pinterest strategy and automated my pinning with my own build tool – PinMeApp. In Nov 2017 I got 3300 page views and then in Dec 2017 8500. That is how my app was born: PinMeApp. I wanted to help others grow traffic to their sites as well. Today I offer subscription for my app, but I also teach people my Pinterest strategy, step by step what I did to grow the traffic so fast, so this blog is now getting around 20k page views each month. I also offer Pinterest Management and implement my strategy for brands who want to reach their audience on Pinterest as well. My Pinterest account reaches over 5m people monthly. If you want such results feel free to contact me. Cheers, Joanna
