This past Memorial Day our family decided to visit Waimanalo Beach Park to escape the crowds on other beaches.
Located in the center of the 75-acre Waimanalo Bay Recreation Area towards on the South East end of the island, Waimanalo Beach Park is a beautiful and uncrowded white sand beach perfect for family recreation.
Similar to other beach parks on the windward side, there are plenty of shaded areas with picnic tables throughout the park.
Across the street local residences sell refreshing ice cold coconut juice ( chilled whole coconut with a straw.)
There is a lifeguard on watch, restroom facilities, and grills to rent. Locals gather for all-night barbecues and visitors come to sunbathe, snorkel and have fun.
The beautiful white powder sand is perfect for kids to build sandcastles or moms to exfoliate their legs.
One of the major attractions of Waimanalo Bay is the surreal underwater environment. Snorkelers will revel in at the clarity of the water, the abundance of marine life, and calm conditions. .
A panaromic view of one of the most beautiful beaches on the island that could be considered most people's definition of paradise. .
Behind the park there is a gorgeous view of the mountains. Parking is free and always available, even on holidays like Memorial Day. There is also fresh water showers available to wash off when the family is done playing.
