Oahu Leeward Region Beaches Title
Oahu Leeward (West) Beaches including beach description and facilities
The Waianae Mountains seperate the Leeward side of Oahu from the rest of the island. You will find many lovely beaches here, worthy of the trip. This side of the island is the driest. Use plenty of sunscreen, drink lots of water, bring a hat and sunglasses. Take good care of the keiki (little ones) here to prevent sunburn and heat stroke! Watch out for Stinging limu, which is active in this region from June through September. Beware of Box Jellyfish which regularly swarm ashore 7-11 days after the full moon. At any beach in Hawaii, obey warning signs, ask lifeguards about ocean conditions, keep your eye on the surf, and if you have any doubt, stay out!
