Waimanalo Beach – One of the Best Hawaii Beaches

One of the best Hawaii Beaches is Waimanalo Beach. Waimanalo Beach Bay consists of 75 acres of pristine beaches from Makapu’u Beach to Bellows Air Force Base. We packed up the boogie boards and headed to Waimanalo Beach with Mitch, the master guide of the Zen Tour. As with many of the best Hawaii Beaches prepare to be awestruck at the beauty when you arrive at Waimanalo Beach. This Oahu beach was recently voted one of the top 5 beaches in the US.

For those that don’t want to brave a surfboard, boogie boarding is the way to go! At Waimanalo Beach the waves were big enough for an exhilarating ride but small enough to be safe.
