What are the best beaches in Hawaii? The beaches of Hawaii are among the most beautiful beaches in the U.S. and the world. From the sunny, sandy, tropically wonderful oasis beaches of Kauai to the bustling fun on Waikiki Beach in Oahu, Hawaii offers visitors and residents the most gorgeous playgrounds ever. Which beach in Hawaii is truly the best? That's for you to decide, with your votes. If any of your favorite Hawaiian beaches are missing, please add them to the list!

Some of the greatest Hawaii beaches are, not surprisingly, located on Oahu. Most notably, several excellent beach locales are in the Honolulu area - without question one of the best beach cities in the world. Hawaii, as any resident or visitor knows, is a true paradise, especially for beach lovers.

One of the best beaches in Hawaii is Kauai's Hanalei Bay. This two-mile long beach is majestic, offering sweepingly beautiful views of the mountains in the distance, great uncrowded areas for swimming and, on occasion, some major waves for surfing enthusiasts.

There's a reason why the Hawaiian Islands are one of the most popular travel destinations, year in and year out. All of the beaches in Hawaii, by the way, are public. This is the ideal vacation spot for couples (especially honeymooners) and families. Hawaii's beaches certainly rival, and possibly surpass, many of the best beaches in Florida.

Here's the thing: Hawaii features some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You really can't go wrong with any of the beaches on this list, so grab the beach towel, some sunscreen, a surf board (if you're so inclined) and get out there on the sand and in the waters. Aloha!
