Fun Activities

  1. Beach: Malaekahana beach is one of the largest beaches on the north coast of Oahu. It is very easy to get your own patch of sand to enjoy outdoor activities like, football, volleyball or frisbee. You can also go for an early morning jog on what seems like an endless beach.
  2. Relax: Enjoy one of Oahu's perfect spots for sunrise or lounge around on the beach and get a tan. If you are up to it, then wake up early and you can witness an amazing Oahu sunrise.
  3. Explore: From this camp site, you can easily explore all North shore has to offer like views from Laie point, the Mormon temple, Kahuku shrimp trucks and much more.
  4. Night: Take a walk on the beach and enjoy the stars. You might be able to even catch some sand crabs. Or stay at your campsite and start a small campfire and enjoy the company of your camping buddies, while making s'mores and singing songs.
