Papaoneone Beach is a great little hidden beach that's about 1/4 of a mile long with clear blue waters located along the Waianae coast on the island of O'ahu.

In the winter you'll find some really large waves while in the summer it's often quite calm. This can be a good place to snorkel on those calm days and a great place to body surf when it's slightly less than calm.

The south half of the beach is located behind a few tall condominium style buildings and they won't let you park in their lot to use this beach. Instead, you'll want to park in the dirt area on the ocean side of the road right at the Jade Street T-intersection. Then follow the little trail right to the beach and enjoy. If that area is full you can find some street just north on Moua St.

The south end of the beach, near the tall buildings, seems to be the best spot if you want to play in the water while the north end has a fairly rock bottom. You won't find any facilities here but there are a few fast food options (with bathrooms if you buy some food) a couple of miles south on the Farrington Highway.

Papaoneone is rarely used during the week and has beautiful clear, blue waters and is worth a look. Just remember, there is no lifeguard here.
