In a nutshell: Waipu’ilani Beach is a the perfect beach of convenience for the local condos and residents.
Minuses: Out of the way for the bulk of visitors staying further South.
Sound-bite: “It’s nice to have what feels like your own private beach.”
Waipu’ilani Beach is a long white sand and coral beach protected by reef and suitable for swimming, long walks, whale watching and beautiful sunsets. Waipu’ilani does sometimes become covered with seaweed, though if that is something that bothers you, there are many beaches close by that will not.
The beach ranges from fully sand to a mixture of coral/sand to largely coral rubble. The beach is great for beachcombers and children. There are opportunities for just-learning stand-up paddlers to catch small breaks during the right conditions.
