WAIMANALO BEACH, OAHU:  AMERICA'S BEST BEACH 2015

Waimanalo Bay Beach Park is located in the northeastern corner of Oahu in the countryside and is often missed by tourists as they cruise through the small village. Waimanalo Bay is Oahu’s longest beach--extending for more than five miles; it is a great for walking and beachcombing in the soft white sand. The wind is always blowing onshore because of the Trade Winds, making it safe for sail boats. This sandy coral beach slopes gently into the turquoise oceanic waters. Be cautious when swimming offshore because the ocean deepens fairly quickly, and strong currents are sometimes present. Look for the lifeguard tower so that you can swim in protected waters. There are restrooms and showers along with shady areas courtesy of the ironwood trees. In addition to swimming, the shallow sand bar provides for good body-boarding. (download the press release)
