Kahe Point was recommended to us by a couple of Oahu residents as an alternative to the crowds of people at Hanauma Bay. Located on the southwest coast, Kahe Point Beach Park is easily accessible on Farrington Highway from either Honolulu or the North Shore. The beach is also referred to as Electric Beach because of the nearby electric power... More

This was a fun and easy place to snorkel or beach dive. I recommend entering the water next to the fence line and keeping your mask and fins in had until you are past the break. The waves are not that big, just wait for the set to blow by and you can swim out easily. Once you pass the... More

Also known as electric beach (because of its location by an electric plant) this is a smaller beach. The waves can get pretty intense. It is a good place for body surfing or boogey boarding.

We went there in December and winds were over 30km. The currents were too strong and we didn't snorkel too much. That said, many people say this is the best place to snorkel on the island with good chances to find and see a turtle.

Uneven, rugged 5 or 6 mile beach walk to the point, depending upon which entrance you select. Lots of Laysan albatrosses, amazing rock formations, lovely walking by the sea or you can take the road. Expect rain for sure in December so bring rain gear and good foot protection.

For more advanced snorkels, as there are no lifeguards. The electric plant across the street discharges warm water out this giant pipe which attracts the fishes and sea turtles. Go early as the surf gets rough and the swim takes some stamina.

Snorkeled off the beach here and saw a surprising amount of marine life! Turtles, spotted eagle rays, and a host of tropical fishes. Follow the pipes going out perpendicular to shore and you can bask in the warm outflow water. Just don't get blown away!

If you are a good swimmer and have been snorkeling before this is the place for you! This is an "open ocean" area and not like Hanauma Bay that is "protected". You will encounter some stronger currents at times but just don't freak out. This is where we saw a turtle and a ton of type of fish. Although Hanauma... More

The "other side" of Oahu. Much less touristy (as evidenced by the attached photo). But a beautiful beach surrounded by beautiful green mountains.
