Nanakuli Beach Park is on Oahu’s leeward coast. It is about 500 feet long and 125 feet wide, lying between two limestone points. The beach is mostly calm but can have high surf and strong currents, especially during the winter and spring. It has parking, restrooms, showers, and lifeguard amenities. It’s about a 10 minute drive from Koolina and Aulani.

It’s west facing so you have a great view of the sunset.  You could do a morning shoot here but there is no shade so 6-7am would be ideal for a morning session.  It can get crowded on weekends and holidays but for a weekday shoot you should have a lot of beach to yourself.
