Lanikai Beach: For most, its Oahu's best swimming beach with its crystal-clear water and one mile long sandy beach.
Hanauma Bay Beach Park: Hanauma Bay is one of the best and most stunning beaches for snorkeling, swimming and scuba diving.
Kailua Beach: A 2-mile-long, wide white strand with dunes, palm trees, panoramic views. Excellent for swimming with azure blue waters. Kailua Beach is also Oahu's premiere spot for windsurfing, kite-boarding, kayaking and stand-up paddling. It's the place where windsurf champion Robby Naish started his career.
Kahana Bay Beach Park: White sand, crescent-shaped beach. Great for kayaking - locals come here on weekends for picnic.
Pounders Beach: Easy access with crushing shore breaks and waves for surfing and bodysurfing. Hazards: Huge shore breaks can be dangerous.
Makapuu Beach Park: Most famous bodysurf beach in Hawaii! With beautiful gold-sand beach cupped in the stark black Koolau cliff.
Sandy Beach: Is one of the best bodysurfing beaches but also one of the most dangerous! Hazards: Crushing shore breaks can be dangerous.
