The serenity here is unlike any other on Oahu. I absolutely love the clear water, white sand, and vast location. Even on holidays, it doesn’t get too crowded. This is great for those who want to be at an off-the-grid beach. Be weary, lifeguards are not widespread. Most times, there are Portuguese man-o-war (A blue type of jellyfish) that can sting humans and ongoing current conditions posted along the beach. This beach is absolutely gorgeous on a sunny day and at times, feels surreal. The fine sand and pristine water is a great place for couples or families.

This beach has two entrances; A public (AKA Sherwoods) and a military (AKA Bellows) side – same stretch of beach just different names/entrances.  The public side is located on the same street as the Waimanalo McDonald’s. As you keep driving down the road on McDonald’s you will see a fence at the end with cars parked -You’re in the right location. The military side – There is a sign that says ‘Bellows Air Force Station’. One must have a Military ID card to get through the guarded gate.
Although it’s not a “parking lot”, we always find a spot somewhere around here. Some neighbors are nice enough to let you park on their property.
Entrance from the parking area.








Decided to get some lunch and bring it back to the beach! This place is a little passed McDonald’s, right next to a 7eleven.
