Waikiki beach, Waialae and Magic Island are close to Waikiki hotels which is a reason why wedding planners prefer to choose them as a wedding location. With an easy access to Waikiki hotels, it is not difficult to avail facilities and service. However, if you move out of Waikiki, you will encounter heavy travel fees. But beauty lovers, there are loads of options to choose from.
Windward Oahu: Makapu’u, Waimanalo, Lanikai and Kailua Beach
Oahu has the two loveliest beaches located on its east cost. Steven Leatherman rated Lanikai and Kailua beach top in the world. If you don’t know who is Steven Leatherman, then knowing that he is an expert on oceans and sand must be enough for you. Kailua Beach’s beauty lies in its white sand which is spread over 2 miles of area. Adjacent to Kailua beach, Lanikai beach is famous for its sunrise marriage ceremonies. Even if you hold your ceremonies somewhere else, you should at least come once to see the beauty of sunrise here.
Another white sand beach with amazing beauty is Waimanalo which has Ko’olau Mountains as its surrounding. Makapu’u beach has lava rocks and shows nice view of Rabbit Island. It is relatively a small beach and gets easily crowded when surf’s up at weekends.
North Shore: Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach, Ke Iki, and Pounders
For your wedding ceremony, many beautiful beaches can be considered at the Oahu’s north shore. These beaches are usually crowded at high surfs during winters. Try to find Ke Iki beach. You surely will love it with its huge tide-pools and lava rocks. Amazing sunset pictures can be clicked at this big beach. Waimea and Sunset beach are known for its famous surfing spots which gets a lot of attraction from surfers. It usually is crowded on weekends.

For a complete local experience, Waianae Coast is the best option for you. Beware of the thefts here. If you are planning your wedding here, make sure that all your valuables are in safe hands or are locked up at safe place because of the higher crime rate. But don’t let the crime rate shatter your dream and plan and organize everything before you move to here. Since these beaches are secluded, you can have easy access to amazing view.
Permit is necessary to be availed by the Oahu government before you could rent a space. This can be easily done by your wedding planner. To preserve the beauty of beaches, there are rules and regulation that you need to be aware of. You need to do some homework before actually holding a marriage ceremony. Wedding planners will ease your job but you should keep in touch with your wedding planner to make sure that everything is falling at right place.
