Paradise Cove Beach Wedding

Paradise Cove Beach – Ideal Sunset Wedding

A Paradise Cove Beach Wedding or Vow Renewal is a great experience. Located at Ko’olina Resort, it is a small white sand beach tucked away down a beach walk path next to the Paradise Cove Luau grounds. In winter the waves can be seen rolling in and breaking on the protective outer reef of the cove.  It’s truly spectacular to watch.  Picturesque, golden sunsets can be a experience here, it’s quite amazing. Families with young children like to use the beach.  The water is rather calm due to the natural volcanic rock wall that acts to protect the beach area. It’s not unusual to spot a sea turtle in the cove or a Hawaiian monk seal resting on the beach.  If you do spot a monk seal on the beach it is recommended to keep your distance.  They come in during the daytime to rest.

Best Sunsets are in West Oahu

The best time of day is in the early morning or late afternoon for photos.  Sunset time is ideal.  It is a public beach but parking is limited unless you plan to go to the luau after your ceremony.  In this case you can park at Paradise Cove Luau. If you are staying at Aulani Resort or Four Seasons Resort Oahu you can easily walk to this beach.  If you are staying at the Marriott Beach Club, you may consider driving as it is about a 20-30 minute walk. So, Paradise Cove Beach is really ideal and convenient if you are already staying at Koolina Resort.  If you plan to drive from Waikiki give yourselves 1.5 hours of drive time in the afternoon.  We recommend this beach for a small group of 10-20 guests.

So, we highly recommend having a Paradise Cove Beach wedding or vow renewal.   If you are a guest at the Koolina Resort then stay put and take full advantage of this resort beach.  Not to mention, there’s a fantastic luau right next door.
