Just a few miles away from Hau'ula vacation rentals are Hawaii's most beautiful beaches, situated on Oahu Island. Oahu is loaded with plenty of outdoor opportunities for adventure and relaxation. Among these activities are exciting mountain hiking trails, swimming at the enchanting waterfalls and of course the most impressive beach sunset views of different colors near those exquisite Hau'ula vacation rentals.
Sunset Beach Park
Sunset Beach Park, about a 40-mile drive from Waikiki, is nestled between Kawela and Waimea on the North Shore of the island. It is favorable for snorkeling and fishing during the summer and surfing during winter time. It is locally known as a "surfer's paradise." Visitors love the two-mile long sandy beach because of its crystal clear blue waters along with wonderful tide pools. As strong currents known as "Sunset Rip" frequently occur, it is best to ask firsthand information from lifeguards before you explore certain parts of the beach. Aside from being a great beach for picnic and family activities, Sunset Beach is proud to deliver marvelous sunset views as well.
Waimanalo Bay Beach Park
Approximately four miles long, Waimanalo Beach is ideal for experienced swimmers and boogie boarders or wave riders. This beach park is actually situated in the middle of the bay. Its northern part is known as Bellows Beach, which used to be a vacation spot for military crews. Despite less than ideal swimming spots due to its rough ocean just to its north, its profile such as its sand, size and its impeccable ocean colors during sunsets make Waimanalo a charming beach.
As one of Hawaii's most picturesque beaches with its excellent sunset views, Lanikai Beach also has an exceptional white sand great for those year-round beach activities. The fact that it's located in a corner of Kailua and bounded by hills adds to its charm. During weekends and high tourist seasons, this beach gets very crowded, while on weekdays it can be serene. As an attractive and popular spot for photo shoots, world-famous models and photographers are commonly seen in the area.
Laie Beach Park
Located on the northern part of Windward Oahu, Laie Beach Park is also known to locals as Pounders Beach. The surfer's area is calm and peaceful while its white sand shores are perfect for strolling and sunbathing. A portion of it has still waters appropriate for those who want to explore around calmer waters, which is why it is also known as "Bathtub Beach." There are large coral reefs that provide protection, making it safe for swimmers. Many find this beach an excellent venue to enjoy their sports together with overwhelming sunset views.
