Word to the wise: Swim with caution; Portuguese Man-of-War jellyfish (also known as Bluebottles) are known to frequent the waters here.

Located on the sunnier side of Windward Oahu, Bellows Fields Beach is a dreamy spot, just far enough off the beaten track to make it special. It boasts a unique, bucolic setting and a crowd free, serene environment.
So, what's the catch? This beach is used by the military, and if you come on weekdays, you'll need to be accompanied by someone with a military ID. However, civilians are welcome on weekends. Bellows Field Beach has an expansive shoreline and open space for gatherings, barbecues and camping. If you plan on swimming, check in with the lifeguard to ensure the water is a jellyfish-free zone.
