Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Kahala Beach is located in the beautiful and prestigious neighborhood of the same name in southeastern O'ahu. There are several white sandy beaches to the left and the right of the beach park. This is not a very popular destination, so you can find some pretty mellow weekdays and mornings. Weekends can fill up, but that is to be expected anywhere on an island. The Kahala Hotel and its famous dolphin ponds are just down the road, and so is the Waialae Country Club.

Waialae Beach Park provides showers, picnic tables, covered tables and large open grass fields nearby. The Waialae Stream pours out into this bay, so it does make the visibility poor sometimes. This beach is not big for recreation, but it is better for working on your tan in peace and quiet. The water is very calm and can get a bit murky; the beach is large but a little bit dirty in places. You can find nice spots by walking to the west for a bit. Overall it is a bit under-the-radar because it doesn't have much that stands out, which is what makes it a nice escape from the crowds.
