It has beautiful golden sand and a colorful blue ocean for a backdrop. It also has lava rock tide pools too. The natural setting at Sandy Beach make it perfect for beach wedding photos.
Like it’s nearby neighbor Makapu’u, Sandy Beach is a favorite beach for body surfing. During the summer months the shore break waves are quite powerful and dangerous. Only those with local knowledge venture out. Off in the distance the Blowhole at Halona Cove is quite spectacular to watch the big surf crashing into the black lava cliffs. The blowhole can erupt shooting water up super high like a geyser! It is most spectacular when it’s high tide and windy. You’ll hear a hum noise just before the blowhole erupts. As a side note, Halona Cove Beach or Eternity Beach as it is also known was the setting of the famous scene where Burt Lancaster kisses Deborah Kerr in 1953’s “From Here To Eternity. The famous kiss considered very risque at that time in American film.
Most people come to Sandy Beach just to watch the waves, take photos, fly a kite, or just enjoy the day with friends and family. There is not much shade at Sandy Beach Park. That’s one reason why we prefer late afternoons close to sunset when the sun is not as hot and bright. For an ideal beach wedding location on Oahu, Sandy Beach is a great choice. You’ll want the best wedding planner in Honolulu to plan your premier Oahu Beach Wedding. So start organizing the wedding of your dreams in Hawaii!
