Malaekahana State Park, Oahu

Malaekahana beach stretches for more than a mile and never busy on weekdays, the waves at this gently sloping beach are often lots of fun - even for novice swimmers. Offshore is Goat Island (not seen from the vantage point in the below photo), a treasure in itself, accessed by wading through the water when the ocean is very calm.
