Oahu's Sandy Beach: Sun-scorched Wildlife


The marine mammals at Sandy Beach frolic unlike their brother-and-sisters of the sea—dolphins and whales. It is not a rare sight to see these creatures in action.



South of Kailua on the Windward Coast, and not far around a point from Honolulu, Sandy Beach is ideal habitat for these creatures. They thrive on wide-open sand, surf, and sunshine.


No binoculars are needed to observe the action, since they gather in large numbers at a near-constant shore break. Besides the crashing and hissing of the surf, the behavior of these fun-loving animals is often accompanied by the roar of car stereos. Weekends are best see them rock out, although weekdays after school lets out is also prime. For directions to this popular beach, consult your Oahu Trailblazer guidebook.
