This is the secret beach in Honolulu, mostly used by the locals. It is just a few minutes away from the famous Waikiki beach. The beach is used by swimmers and regular people from the area. There is a canoe club for outrigger canoes. This beach is also a very popular place among the Japanese newlyweds for wedding pictures. Some days you can see double digits of couples coming to the beach in white limousines to take the perfect pics. The reason the beach is perfect for swimming is that there is a reef acting as a natural fence against the big ocean. You are inside and the water is calm. Some days you will almost bump into turtles when you are swimming or paddleboarding. It is just a very cool beach, much less crowded than Waikiki.
