Bellows Field Beach Park

Description

This popular east side park is a great swimming beach protected by an offshore reef and a great sunbathing beach with soft, white sand. The shallow water and consistent shorebreak is often utilized by beginner surfers and body boarders. Bellows Field Beach Park usually provides calm water conditions unless the ocean waves are large. This is a great beach for a long walk along beautiful Waimanalo Bay or just relaxing on the white sand beach, though it is not such a great beach for snorkeling. Ironwood trees along the beach provide plenty of shady areas. Bellows Field Beach Park is just one of three prominent beaches on the expansive Waimanalo Bay. The other two are Waimanalo Bay Beach Park and Waimanalo Beach Park.

Great For

Long beach walks, sunbathing, picnics, fishing, swimming when the open ocean waves are not too large.

Highlights

Swimming in the turquoise waters and gazing at the deeply-furrowed Koolau mountains is unforgettable.
