Getting to Know the Area
Escape the crowds at Waikiki and relax on a beach located on base. Hickam Beach is the perfect spot for learning how to surf, party gatherings, beach volleyball or simply sunbathing under the tropical sun. Party pavilions are available for rent, and additional amenities include restrooms and showers. Lifeguards are stationed on the beach during the weekends, and a surf shack offers rentals of beach equipment at affordable prices. Honeymoon Beach is a private lagoon just off of Hickam Beach. This secluded area comes with a lifeguard and picnic area. An alcohol permit is available through the Hickam Harbor office, but glass containers are not allowed. The beach can be rented for up to five hours between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Call 808-449-5215 for more information.
