Kailua Beach Park Kailua

The waters are blue, sand very white and on weekdays pretty secluded, we were there many times during the week and it was amazing, there is a park right next to it where you can make BBQ or picnic
Kailua beach park, along with neighboring Lanikai, has some of the bluest, beautiful water that you've ever seen, and for me that's considering I've been to Bora Bora, Klein Bonaire, St. John, Maui, Kauai and Berm...

Ka'ena Point State Park Waianae
#10 of 218 Nature & Parks in Oahu
The walk in along the ocean was pretty amazing, but for me what made this park great is the albatross and other wildlife at the end of this hike.

Lanikai Pillboxes Kailua
#21 of 218 Nature & Parks in Oahu
Tip: If you plan on going to Lanikai beach after the hike, park closer to the beach rather than the trail!
One option is to drop off the family right at the trailhead, which is also somewhat hidden, and then the driver parks the car.
Waimanalo Beach Waimanalo

The best places to visit the beach in Waimanalo is Kaiona Beach Park, which is further to the south, or what we locals call "Sherwood Forest", which is across from the polo horse stables, a little to the north of...
Adding to kid-friendliness - smaller waves mean rip currents are less likely and the open nature of the beach plus Oahu’s small tidal range should see an absence of tidal currents particularly close to shore.
