One of the most common questions we get at Islander Weddings is: What are the best wedding venues in Oahu? With so many options, we’d like to help everyone out by narrowing things down a bit in this blog: The Top 5 Beach Wedding Venues In Oahu, Hawaii.
5. Fort DeRussy Beach Park is a very convenient, hidden gem located right in Waikiki with breathtaking sunsets. Fort DeRussy is a beautiful park with tropical plants, trees and Hawaiian architecture. The private park area is a perfect spot for ceremonies, and the nearby beach is ideal photography and festivities.
4. Magic Island is a huge beach park characterized by Hawaiian grasses, plants and palm trees. The park is surrounded by a water backdrop frequented by sailboats, canoes, and surfers. The focal point of this top wedding venue is Diamond Head Mountain rising in the distance, an iconic symbol of Hawaii. Minutes from Honolulu, gorgeous sunsets make this southern Oahu location one of our favorite evening wedding venues.
3. Waialae Beach is a small, intimate beach framed by arching palm trees and light blue ocean color. This quiet beach wedding venue is just 15 minutes from Waikiki. As you can see from the wedding photos below, this is one of the most picturesque and private locations on the island.
2. Makapu’u Beach is defined by rugged mountains and cliffs surrounding the beach at this oceanfront cove venue. Makapuu Lighthouse and a small uninhabited island just off the coast make for a stunning backdrop. Just 35 minutes from Waikiki, this venue is sure to take your breath away.
1. Waimanalo Bay is the largest beach on Oahu, and also one of the most peaceful. Rarely visited by tourists, this uncrowded and uncommercialized atmosphere make it our top beach wedding venue. Characterized by turquoise blue water and majestic mountains looming in the background, a wooded forest adds a nice contrast to the beach’s white sands. This venue is 45 minutes from Waikiki, located in the southern countryside of Oahu.
