ADVENTURE LOCATIONS 01
I gathered these locations together because they are easy to get too, and pretty close to each other. These locations are located on the Windward (East) side of Oahu. Each location is beautiful, but different, which gives you a lot of unique aesthetics in your photos. We can head to a beach, then to lava tubes, then to a cliffside overlooking a beach down below all in your adventure session. We can hit up just 2 or 3 of these locations, or try to get to all of them! At the moment, I currently have 05 locations chosen below for your adventure….. Check them out!!
Makaapuu is known for its unique lava rocks, tide pools, and a large mountain in the backdrop. This beach is not great for swimming and the water is typically rough, but the tide pools you can easily go swimming in. There is ample parking, and the sand is about a 5 minute walk from the parking lot.
The cliffs and grassy area are very unique, and the view is epic. There is plenty of parking, and it’s a very short walk to this location. There are no facilities located here.
It’s unique to the Island and there is no place similar. It is all lava rocks and they are rough on your feet. When it is windy or rough seas, it could be dangerous. If you aren’t into being risky, this is not the location for you. It is hard to get around this spot. I recommend going barefoot, but bringing easy slip ons or slides to walk to certain locations at this spot. Parking is easy, and the views are unreal.
This beach is small, but quiet and pretty! The water is always calm, there are small rock cliffs and trees that line the beach. There aren’t many people around, parking is easy, and there are no bathrooms available.
Located closer to Waikiki. It is about a 30 minute drive to this location. There is a wide beach with sand, crazy waves, lava rock formations and mountains in the backdrop. There is plenty of parking available, and there are restrooms and showers nearby. If you want to take a dip in the water, there are tide pools here that we can do so safely.
ADVENTURE LOCATIONS 02
These locations below are filled with beaches, large mountains, and lots of greenery. These locations are a few miles away from each other located on the North side of the Island near Kualoa Ranch. These locations are very unique to Oahu, and there isn’t anywhere I am familiar with that resembles them. All of these locations have calm water and swimming is definitely a possibility!! We can head to a few of these spots, or try to conquer all 05 of them…. Check out the locations below!!
