are a top destination for a family vacation, especially for families with kids who love to spend time on the beach. The Aloha State has a ton of beaches to choose from, but some may not be suitable for small children because of deep waters or overpopulated shore space.
Taking these and other factors into account, the San Francisco Chronicle recently listed some of the best beaches for families to visit in Hawaii. The news source took into account things like ease of access, suitable facilities, and large, open spaces for kids to play comfortably. While many private beaches at Hawaii's all-inclusive resorts fit this criteria, the list is limited to public beaches that everyone can access.
On the island of Oahu, many tourists will opt for the famous sands of Waikiki beach. However, families might want to head for the more secluded Sans Souci beach. This spot is less crowded, and located right by the Waikiki Aquarium.
Other beaches that made the list include Ha'Puna Beach on the Big Island, Kama'ole Beach Park on Maui, and Anini Beach Park on Kauai.
If that's not enough reason to book a trip to Hawaii, parents might be interested to know that Hawaii was recently voted the top family vacation destination in the world by readers of the luxury travel website Virtuoso.
