This Slice Of Paradise Will Become Your New Favorite Hawaii Hangout
With more than 750 miles of stunning coastline and countless incredible beaches, the Hawaiian Islands are home to more coastal hangouts than any other American State. And while nothing compares to the feeling of fine white sand beneath your toes and turquoise waters crashing against the shore, this little slice of paradise along the Hawaiian coast comes pretty close.
Nestled at the edge of a ritzy residential neighborhood just east of Diamond Head Beach on the southern shore of Oahu, Cromwell’s Beach is a true local secret.
While you will find a stretch of pristine sand at Cromwell’s perfect for curious kiddos to wade and play in the sand...
...the true beauty of this little-known beach is in the rockwall walkway and crystalline cove. It seriously doesn’t get any more gorgeous than this.
With patches of reef scattered along the shore, you’ll find stellar snorkeling at high tide, and at low tide, a series of picturesque tide pools.
Did we mention the ethereal glow found here near sunset?
Cromwell’s Beach is named after Doris Duke’s husband, James Cromwell, likely due to the beach’s proximity to Doris Duke’s Shangri La, which you’ve probably noticed overlooking the cove in this photograph.
Go during a weekend or holiday and you’ll quickly understand how popular this hangout is among locals, but if you go early enough during the week, you might have the cove and accompanying beach to yourself. Plus, it will be easier to find parking.
Have you experienced this gorgeous slice of paradise for yourself? Why not make a day out of it and take this
stellar southeastern Oahu road trip or perhaps plan a visit to Doris Duke’s Shangri La?
