After church, a great brunch at the Officer’s Club and an overlook of the Marine Base it was time for a swim at the beach 900 feet from the Kelly’s home. The North Beach, also listed on some GPS as Officer’s Beach, is located along the windward side of Oahu, accessible only through Kaneohe Bay Marine Corps Base. This rugged beach located next to housing and the base golf course, proves that there is more than just one type of beach in Hawaii. Unlike the tropical white sands of other beaches, North Beachâ€™s appeal is its rugged shores with lava shelves that pool with water as waves pound the shoreline. This is really not a beach for snorkeling or swimming, but the guys did try. North Beach is a beach for marveling at Mother Natureâ€™s ferocity as waves crash and the ocean breeze picks up. This is the beach that you want to stroll along, and be reminded of just how powerful the ocean really can be.
