The Sunday Traveler ~ Taking In the Waters of Oahu’s West Shore

On the west side of the island of Oahu lie rocky shores in places, in addition to open stretches of sandy beaches

The amazing thing The Sunday Traveler found here was the emptiness of the beaches; a stark contrast to the beaches of Waikiki on the other side of the island that are crowded and noisy.

On the day spent on the beach pictured above, there was a total of about five people there.


A day of finding little spots of serenity and beauty on one beach.

Sun glittering on the water, wind making knots in my hair, and waves splashing and dancing

This beach, at Yokohama Bay, offered wildness and also little coves of serenity where colors of the water were stunning

The Sunday Traveler has most probably saturated you in all the water, but my hope is that it may add a calming element to your day.

Until next time, aloha.

  6. We went to that side of the island a couple of times. It’s so beautiful there. Gorgeous photos Angeline. They took me right back there. I like the one of the all white water, and the one of the paddle boarder sitting on the board – how did that other person get there and get back? I guess they both went out on the same board. It sounds like you had a sweet day on that side of the island.
