Let me start this blog with this: Paradise is NOT cheap. The cost of living in Hawaii is one of the highest, if not the HIGHEST in the United States. The locals are being driven out in loads and moving to the mainland because of the cost of living. However, with the cost of living, comes = PARADISE. Days at the beach are a luxury that the locals here pay for in full!
We live on an island, therefore it is really no more than 20 minutes away from anywhere you are, depending on which beach you would like to go to.
The water is always crystal clear, blue, and warm. The sun is always shining, and the sand is always sparkling white. The beach offers an abundance of activities to choose from. You can do anything from kayaking to paddleboarding to just lying out and sunbathing. Going for a swim and frolicking in the water with my children is my favorite activity to do at the beach.
Below are some photos from our recent trip to the beach. This is at Waimanalo beach on Oahu, and our favorite beach to go!
