My Backyard: Bellows Beach
Bellows Beach, located along the windward side of Oahu offers some of the best beach real estate on the island. And it is owned by the Air Force! During the week, the beach is only open to those with military ID’s. However, on the weekend the beach opens up to the masses, and people flock to Bellows’ gorgeous white sands and aqua water that cannot be competed with anywhere else on the island. During the Summer it is crowded with swimmers, beginning board surfers, body surfers and campers. It has shallow waters and a small consistent shorebreak. Surfing is not allowed in the area between the two lifeguard towers, but this beach is a great place to practice surf boarding and body surfing where permitted.
