Oahu Windward Region Beaches Title
Windward (East) Oahu Beaches including beach description and facilities
Some say the Windward side is home to the best beaches in Oahu. Tradewinds keep this coast cool 90 percent of the year. You'll find lush beach areas with great easy surfing, swimming, and windsurfing. However, watch out for Portuguese Man of War that are blown in by the tradewinds, as well as Stinging limu, which is present from June to September on this side of the island. 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!

Known for its soft white sand, clear water, and gentle waves. Afternoon
shade, not commonly found on Oahu beaches. Fairly noisy due to being
close to the road. Watch for jellyfish warning signs, stay in safe areas.

Goat Island, a bird sanctuary, is located just off shore. At low tide the
water is shallow enough to wade out to it. Wear water sneakers to avoid
cutting your feet on coral. Please observe the birds from afar and be
careful not to step on their nests!

Named after the pounding shore break providing short but spectacular
bodysurfing. West end calm and safe for swimming. Dangerous
shorebreak, sudden drop off and strong rip currents at the opposite end,
near the limestone cliffs. Particularly busy on weekends and after school,
weekday mornings are the quietest.
