Fodor's Expert Review Bellows Beach Park

Windward Oahu Beach Fodor's Choice

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, trade winds bring clouds that get hung up on steep mountains nearby, causing overcast skies. There are no food concessions, but McDonald's and other take-out fare are right outside the entrance gate. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: solitude; walking; swimming.
