Mokule'ia Army Beach can be found in Waialua on the northshore of O'ahu. It's just east of Camp Harold Erdman Beach and just west of (similarly named) Mokuleia Beach Park and right across the street from the west end of Dillingham Airfield. See our map / directions page for exact location.

Mokule'ia Army Beach is actually a bit of a hidden gem and few tourists venture up this way. While it doesn't have any facilities (no bathrooms or showers) the seclusion here makes it worth the trip. On the weekend you'll usually find one or two families but during the week it will probably be vacant.

When people are here they're usually fishing further down (east) where the shoreline is fairly rocky. There is a really nice non-rocky area to set up shop and enter the ocean from which is right behind one of the little parking areas on the side of the road.

Just look for the colored (painted) cement barriers on the ocean side of the road (some of which are planters that somebody made as a memorial to their son) and where the big concrete cube like building is (an old Army building) towards the west end of Dillingham Airfield.

Park there, head straight back towards the ocean and you'll see a large area where you can get in the water. Of course, if you are here in the winter or anytime when the surf is pounding the shore then stay out of course. The water here is really clear and makes some beautiful shades of blue to enjoy while you relax or play. Just remember, you're on your own here since there are no lifeguards.
