Barber's Point Beach Park is located on the southwest tip of the island of O'ahu, and is named after Captain Henry Barber, who ran aground here in 1796. The beach is mostly known for it's pretty lighthouse, but is not the ideal place if your main purpose is to swim. The beach is located in an industrial part of town, and offers a natural respite for the locals and workers in the area. You're likely to find some peace and quiet with your pooch here, as the beach is not overly crowded, regardless of the time of day.
Doggos are allowed on the Barber's Point Beach Park in areas below the high tide line, meaning they can play in the ocean and tide pools below the line marked by ocean debris and seaweed. The beach is mostly used by fishermen and picnickers. There is a low limestone shelf along most of the shoreline which makes entering the ocean difficult, but on a hot summer day you can still so some wading beyond the rocks, or let your pal cool their paws on the shore.
One of the downsides of this beach is that you may have to put up with some smells from the nearby factories. Although this isn't the best beach if you're hoping to spend a full day swimming and playing, it's great for a casual stroll or a place to relax and enjoy the views. The pristine white lighthouse with the gorgeous ocean views as a backdrop make for great photo opportunities. On this beach you can snuggle up with your best pal and enjoy the sunset, and views of the Southwest tip of O'ahu.
Dogs are welcome here you both paws, and you may have the chance to meet new furry friends. Please keep your pupper leashed and picked up after at all times, and bring your own clean up bags and water.
Overall, Barber's Point Beach Park is a great place to take a moment and enjoy the ocean with your four-legged friend.
