Mokule’ia Beach Park
You wouldn’t imagine that this lonely beach is located just outside of Waikiki. The sand is incredibly soft, making it a perfect place to lay down for an afternoon. You’ll have to be a strong swimmer to take on these waters, though, as the strong winds manipulate the current. This is part of the reason the beach is so empty for most of the week.On weekends, however, locals come by to spend the day gazing up at the planes casting off from the Dillingham Airfield nearby. Any other day, you can stop by to lounge around and watch the kitesurfers in the distance, while knowing that you’re very likely to have the whole beach to yourself. For the film buffs, this is also the site from the pilot of the LOST series, sending fans down memory lane as they walk down the shoreline.
