Malaekahana Bay

Top 10 Beaches in Hawaii

Malaekahana Bay on Oahu, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Hawaii Beaches, offers fishing, kayaking, surfing and windsurfing


Malaekahana Bay
56-335 Kamehameha Hwy.
Laie, HI 96762

We love that this beach is a world away from the Waikiki tourist scene. Reminiscent of "old Hawaii," Malaekahana Bay is situated near the North Shore of Oahu and boasts great conditions for swimming, surfing, fishing, windsurfing and kayaking. The ample shade provides a great picnic setting for the whole family. Malaekahana also has varied camping facilities, such as areas for pitching a tent, plantation huts and eco-cabins. The staff at the campgrounds is courteous and eager to share information on Hawaiian culture and how to best enjoy your time at the "Home of the Beachfront Li'l Grass Shacks."
