to Polo Nude Beach on the North Shore of Oahu.
Thunder reports on
on the island of Oahu
I am a Native American, Plains Indian who recently moved to Hawaii. I searched
the internet, after learning in April 2003 that my partner and I had 5 weeks to
pack up and move to Oahu. Our plan was to move to Maui, but sidetracked was by
another offer of transfer. As I heard Oahu was the most populated of the islands
of Hawaii, I was concerned we could not sunbath and swim in the nude.
the Internet, we read Don's article in this web site about Polo beach on the North
Shore of Oahu. We looked on every map, but could find no listing of a Polo Beach.
We eventually went to the north shore in serach of Polo Beach and finally found
a couple of local ladies who could tell us where the beach was located.
our surprise, even on weekends we were free to swim and sunbathe in the nude.
As my girlfriend and I are completely shaved, and quite attractive, we have to
be careful where we take our clothes off.
nude beach is just before Polo Beach, you can see the cars parked in the
grass on both sides of the road just before Polo. Polo itself is private, but
the beach and public access just before are public. Always leave your vehicle
either unlocked, or windows and convertible top down. We drive our 40K new sports
car there and haven't had a problem.
Another piece of advice, instead of walking in on the main beach access,
park your car just past the bridge, the route is shorter and from the crest of
the beach, depending on where you park, you can view your car or hear the alarm
if it sounds.
you enter the public right of way, If you are gay, I suggest going right all the
way. If you're a couple then I suggest staying to the left, for you will find
others just like you. Watch out for the occasional as I say, "bushwhacker,"
for every nudist beach has them. Stay by or near others who are like you. The
gays pretty much are only looking for others like themselves, but will sometimes
sit by a lone male. They're not a bother to a single female or couple.
The swimming is great, no jellyfish and the cove is protected by a fantastic reef
with little or no current. Even a novice swimmer will feel safe here, which is
amazing for the North Shore of Oahu. The sand is also fantastic and as long as
you don't walk out to the road nude, you will be 100% ok for nude sunbathing.
you are done sunbathing, head down the road past Polo Beach, where they play Polo
on Sundays, and within 2-3 minutes, you will be at a state park where you can
camp for free 7 days a week and use the shower and bathroom. I have found this
place to be incredible.
to be always Aloha, being friendly, but you don't need to invite them into your
camp and they will watch out for you. When you finish your trip, if you have left
overs, or extra ice, etc. Offer it to those who are camping and you will find
your next stay even better.
yesterday, my beautiful angel and I enjoyed the beach, even though maybe
over a 100 individuals were enjoying the ocean and the beach, we were in our
regular spot and had almost 200 yards to ourselves.
we entered late, normally I like to be there by myself between 7am-9am, for generally
it's only me and some of the locals who watch the beach daily. Yesterday, we arrived
was hit by the most awesome wave, broke right over her head, 25-30 yard out,
and if she hadn't dove into it, she would have been crushed. We love that cove,
yet as it's winter now, we must be just a little more wary. The benefit is no
current, for the novice swimmer as long as they ask a local, they will be 100%
friendly words. I normally tell my angel, we won't stay late watching the sunset,
for the beach generally clears around 4pm and those who wish to conduct themselves
in what I consider not appropriate behavior, take over. Yesterday as we got there
late, we stayed later. Again, my instincts were correct. Two couples on the main
beach were engaging in show and tell, and another two single males headed into
the forest. To Tina's surprise, they were having sex. Had they shown a little
more discretion, it would have been 100% ok.
1 Hawaiian family with two little girls, who were all clothed were on the beach
yesterday. We asked permission before we set up our location. As I like, other
responsible nudists, wish never to offend, just to enjoy the sun, good company
and swim as God made us.
note) - It's open sexual behavior that makes some people want to shut down beaches
where there is nudity. You should be aware that there are no "legal"
nude beaches in Hawaii. On some beaches, like this one, nudity is tolerated by
the officials but only so long as users of the beach behave in a responsible manner.
That means no sexual activity on the beach.
