Fodor's Review

Bellows is the same beach as Waimanalo, but it's under the auspices of the military, making it more friendly for visitors—though that also limits public beach access to weekends. The park area is excellent for camping, and ironwood trees provide plenty of shade. The beach is best before 2 pm. After 2, the trade winds bring clouds that get hung up on steep mountains nearby, causing overcast skies until midafternoon. There are no food concessions, but McDonald's and other

takeout fare, including huli huli (rotisserie) chicken on weekends, are right outside the entrance gate. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: solitude; swimming.
