Russell Kealoha’s Picks for Best Beaches in Oahu
World-class: “Lanikai Beach is (rated) one of the nicest beaches in the world, located in Kailua over on the east side of Oahu.”
Swim with green sea turtles: “Hanauma Bay is a definite must go. It has beautiful, clear blue water and fish that might bite you if you try to feed them.”
Hang ten: “Ehukai Beach on the North Shore is where you’ll find the Banzai Pipeline. Look but don’t try.”
