Bellows Beach Park on Oahu, is one of the more popular ocean recreation areas on the island.
On July 4, 1964, about 46 acres of Bellows Field Air Force Station beachfront was turned over to the State of Hawaii for public use on weekends and national holidays. This section of the beach, known as Bellows Field Beach Park, is maintained by the City and County of Honolulu.
This beautiful beach has shallow water and a small consistent sandbar, shore break making it perfect for swimmers, bodysurfing and bodyboarding.
Bellows is a typical windward beach with an interesting array of marine life. The prevailing trade winds blow a jellyfish called the Portuguese man o’war onshore.
Small, blue, floating bubbles that are hard to see in the surf, man o’war inflict painful stings on unwary swimmers.
