Paradise Cove Beach - Description

Hidden paradise on the west coast of Oahu

Powder sugar white sand, green coconut palms and turquoise blue sea. Paradise Cove lives up to its name. Likewise, the cove provides a natural environment for seals or sea turtles.

If you haven't heard of the natural cove, you probably won't get to see its beauty. The hidden Paradise Cove is located in the west of Oahu and belongs to the beaches, which have preserved their originality. Lonely and romantic, the beach is located behind the Paradise Cove Luau and can only be reached by a small path. Some may think that the beach is a private beach and belongs to the Paradise Cove Luau, but this is not the case. The beach is accessible to everyone via the path. Once the narrow path lined with palm trees is passed, the beach awaits its visitors with fine white sand and crystal clear water. Shallow and slow, the beach slopes down into the water for a relaxing swim. Existing rocks, which lie in the sea at the end of the bay, delimit the area to the open ocean and keep off strong waves as well as powerful sea currents.

Depending on the time of day, and certainly some luck plays a role, visitors to the beach can spot sea turtles in the crystal clear water. Seals can also be seen from time to time on the beach and enjoy the warm rays of the sun. There is nothing wrong with taking photos as a souvenir, but it should be remembered that this is the natural habitat of the animals and they do not want to be touched or even held. Those who go to cool off in the clear, calm water should always take care of themselves and others. There is no lifeguard here. The existing rocks in the sea keep currents away, but this does not guarantee that stronger currents can not still appear in the protected bay.

Those who spend the entire day in the hidden bay will be rewarded with a breathtaking sunset in the evening. Every day the sun sinks into the horizon in vibrant orange and red colors, bathing sailboats in deep black silhouettes and reflecting its strong hues in the waves of the sea.

Information for visitors

Beach facilities:

Paradise Cove is a secluded secluded paradise in its original state. Guests who come here are on a hidden beach that few vacationers visit and enjoy the breathtaking tranquility. Therefore, there is nothing here except for a few parking spaces. No washrooms, no beach attendants, and no picnic tables either. Attention, the opposite Paradise Cove Luau does not like it when beach visitors want to use their facilities, such as toilets.

Directions and parking:

If you travel by car from Waikiki, it takes about 40 minutes. To do this, simply drive Highway 1 west until you reach the Ko'olina exit. As soon as a signpost for Lanikuhonua appears, you have to turn right and after a short time you will find the parking lot on the right side.

On weekdays it is usually no problem to get a parking space, but on weekends it might be difficult. There are only 12 parking spaces available at Paradise Cove. It is worth to be there early.

Visitors who want to reach the beach by public bus from Waikiki are less lucky here. Similar to Ko'olina Lagoons, it takes a lot of effort to reach the beach by bus. Several transfers are necessary and a one-way trip takes about 3 hours.

What we say

Even without going into the water, the green sea turtles and colorful fish can be seen up close in the crystal clear sea.
Our checklist & tips:
  • No WC's, showers and also no lifeguards
  • Only a few parking spaces available
  • Turtles and seals can be observed up close here
  • Very suitable for small children
