Bellows Beach Park

Bellows Beach Park, Oahu

Located on Oahu's windward coast, Bellows Beach is noted for its clear, azure blue waters, soft white sand and waves ideal for bodyboarding. Many people would consider it one of the prettiest beaches on the island. The beach is backed by rows of ironwood trees, which provide plenty of shade in the afternoons.

A true paradise...Haven't been there since the 70's but heading back in Sept 2012. Can't wait until I feel the soft white sand between my toes and the feel the awesome warm, blue water.

I broke my neck body surfing at Bellows in February 2001. Be careful! The shore break there can be nasty. Luckily I crawled out of the water. I didn't know my neck was broken until after a CAT scan. I had walked into the emergency room of Stroub Hospital. When I got back home I bought the Anatomy Coloring Book so I could see what I'd done to what.

This is an awesome beach to take the kids. The waves are great, the water is warm, and child friendly. The beach line runs far enough out that the kids are able to body board without fear. There are bathrooms, shops, and a rinse area for when you need to clean off the sand. The sand is great too. White, soft, powder sand. If you are looking for a place to take the family, I highly recommend this place.
