White Plains

Beaches
  • Plenty of room for everyone

When we first went to White Plains, we asked, “Where the heck are all the people?” We’re still asking, and that’s a good thing.

White Plains is in an out-of-the-way location on Oahu’s west side, and because it’s so far from Waikiki and other resort areas, few tourists visit. There’s plenty of parking and lots of space on the beach, so even on weekends you can find a great spot.

Highlights

  • This is a popular spot to learn how to surf. Waves are small but rideable, and there’s a sandy bottom.
  • Monk seals commonly beach themselves here. They’re protected by law, so enjoy them from a distance.
  • Beautiful ironwood trees drape over rustic outdoor showers.
