    Up through Makaha. On a side note, if you do it on a Saturday morning stop at the Waianae farmers market and get the best malasadas on the island. They alone are worth the trip (get the taro ones). :wings

    Hau’ula Beach Park.

    Hau'ula Beach. Great for picnicking, camping, shoreline fishing. Bad for swimming though.

    DSC_0358.JPG
    Hau'ula Beach is wide open for families.

    Hau'ula is HUGE!

    Took this route today. Really enjoyed it. We stopped at Kawela Bay to see the old Banyan tree.

    My wife and I did this same trip a couple of years back two up on a Suzuki TU250. We were stuck in Waikiki and it was driving me nuts so we snuck out away from family for the day. Awesome little loop. We had poke at Ching's Market, stopped for lunch and squall in Haleiwa then back to Waikiki. Got up early the next morning as we still had a couple of hours left on the rental got malisadas at Leonard's.

    Duanob, I fully understand. I avoid Honolulu and Waikiki as much as possible.

    Kokololio Beach Park is very big, swimming is good, but not for novice swimmers.

    DSC_0363.JPG
    Kokololio Beach Park also has many tree groves, good for seclusion, provides shade on hot days.

    DSC_0364.JPG
    See how the park side rises up over a sand berm to the beach? This is nice on windward days.

    DSC_0365.JPG
    On the other side of the natural sand berm is the beach at high tide.

    Next: We call this "no name beach", because...there is no name. Beautiful park and wonderful beach here.

    No name beach...it's wonderful.

    I used to make that drive almost everyday as a teenager during the winter to go surfing.

    thanks for the memories!

    Admiral, thanks. The Windward side of Oahu is still pretty much "old school" and I love it that way.
    sperz1, You got to experience the best side of the island, that's for sure!
    strat10, you sure had a cherished young life. Glad that you like the "ride".

    The Polynesian Cultural Center. 42-acres of living museum, shopping, luau nights, authentic Polynesian foods. It is owned by the LDS Church, and BYU-Hawaii (Brigham Young University –Hawaii) is nearby.

    I got LUCKY! I had a virus attack my computer, attached all of my 70K photos and put them in the recycle bin. I don’t know how many times I’ve just right-clicked the trash bin and hit ‘delete all permanently’. This time I got lucky after I panicked and went slowly through my computer and found all of my photos in the bin. I’m recovering them now to redundant hard-drives. Once sorted, I’ll continue with this thread. I’ve also got photos to do a thread from Kaneohe, round the south side, to Diamond Head. That’ll be fun too. More soon.....

    My wife and I were just in Oahu. We didn't get too far out of Waikiki, but we had a great time. Hopefully, if we get to come back, I want to take her around the island. I was there in the early 90's while in the Navy and did some snorkeling at Haunama Bay and scuba diving at Waimea and Three Tables. I still remember the lava tubes at Three Tables.

    Great pics and RR!

    Hooligan998, thanks. I have not dived 3-Tables yet, but the lava tubes and arches just outside of the Sharks Cove breakwater are beautiful as well. If you ever get back over here, let me know, we’ll link-up for coffee or a libation, or even a dive. Have a reflective Veteran’s Day as well. Thanks for your time serving.

    My family and I stayed in Punalu'u last December. Had a chance to see the Pipeline surf contest, hike Ehukai pillbox and had a great time. North shore is the best!
