⭐️ Magic Island Lagoon:
Magic Island Lagoon is a manmade peninsula at the east end of Ala Moana Beach Park. It offers a lovely sandy beach that is wave free, so the water is crystal clear and shallow so long as you don't wade out too deeply. The area is a favorite with locals for picnicking and just hanging out thanks to its large, grassy area and multiple restrooms with showers. There is a large parking lot with ample space provided that you get there before mid-morning.

⭐️ Secret Beach (Pali Kilo Beach):
Secret beach is located on the Kaneohe Marine Corp Base and base access is required to get there. There are no bathrooms or showers, but there's a little patch of trees where you can do your business or, there's always the ocean!

⭐️ Ko Olina Lagoons:
Ko Olina Lagoons are four beautifully man-made coves on Oahu's west side owned by Ko Olina resort but available to the public for swimming. Because these lagoons aren't completely cut off from the ocean, a variety of sea life can enter including fish and even sea turtles. There are also excellent amenities, like bathrooms, showers, and water fountains. You are not allowed to bring umbrellas or beach canopies of any kind. When we go, I ensure we cover up with wide brimmed hats and of sunscreen. TIP**** Get there early so you don't have to wait for parking.

⭐️ Dog Beach (Kamehameha Beach):
Dog Beach, or Kamehameha Beach, is located on Hickam Airforce Base, so full disclosure ****base access is required to get there. And it's not a lagoon, but extremely shallow area of sandy coastline that basically just floods with rising tides. There are no amenities here, so be ready to do your business in nature, but the quiet setting is perfect for little kids and even a sunset with the family. And despite its name, dogs are no longer allowed here so be sure to leave furry family members at home.

⭐️ Lanikai Beach:
Lanikai Beach is gorgeous, and the sand is the softest that I've found on Oahu. Depending on the time of year, the waters are calm with virtually no waves. It really is picture perfect Hawaii with crystal clear waters and swaying palm trees. There are no amenities, unlike Kailua Beach only a short drive away, and parking is a royal pain. You have to park your car along the residential street or, if that is closed, just up the road in Kailua.

⭐️ Alan Davis Beach:
Alan Davis Beach is an amazing, well-hidden cove below the Makapuu Lighthouse, just a small detour from the Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Park in the Makapu'u lighthouse parking lot and, After about a 5-10 minute walk on an unpaved trail, you'll find yourself at a picture perfect swimming cove. The absolute best part about Alan Davis Beach is that it is completely natural. There are no manmade structures or artificial sand. The beach is cozy and quiet, and the water is a beautiful turquoise blue. It's 100% real Hawaii perfect for families to enjoy with their little kids. Be advised that there are no amenities here, and I would recommend bringing plenty of water and sunshade if you come during peak sun hours.
