This beach has soft golden sand, and nice green grass lined with coconut trees, which makes for a nice location for your perfect Hawaiian beach wedding. This beach park is less than ten minutes away from Waikiki. I love performing weddings here because it features a beautiful back drop of the blue ocean, Waikiki hotels, and Diamond Head.
There are plenty of parking spaces available, however, it can be very limited on the weekends due to the popularity of this beautiful beach park. **Due to the distance from my home, travel fee is $40.00.
