2019 SUMMER– FALL
SIMPLICIO PARAGAS Senior Editor, WhereTraveler ® Hawai‘i @whereoahu
The world is full of beautiful beaches, luxury hotels and world-class environments, but there is only one with aloha spirit. More than just “hello” or “goodbye,” aloha is a way of living and being here in Hawai‘ i. And, we want to share this with you. So, e kipa mai — welcome.
With 112 miles of coastline, it’s easy to find just the right beach on O‘ahu. From dramatic rocky outcroppings to sublime, smooth-water bays, we have it all. We’ve chosen seven of our favorite beaches and we encourage you to check them out. Remember, always practice safety when you’re in the water and heed all warnings.
For the water-sports enthusiast, we recommend taking a surf lesson or snorkeling at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. To learn about some of our more friendly marine life, Dolphin Quest provides the opportunity to do so. And for a land experience, explore the trendy area known as Kaka‘ako.
