Overview

Clark is deputy fire chief for the city and county of Honolulu and the author of many books about Hawaii's beaches, including The Beaches of Maui County, Beaches of the Big Island, and Hawaii's Best Beaches. This reference guide to Oahu's beaches begins at Ala Moana Regional Park and continues counter-clockwise around the island. All beaches, known and relatively unknown, are listed with their physical characteristics, recreational uses, historic and cultural significance, and possible dangers that beach-goers should be aware of. Each beach is identified by its official and unofficial, or popular, name used by residents. When available, the author has added brief histories of the beaches as handed down through the native Hawaiian oral tradition and related Hawaiian chants and verses. This new edition includes 60 color photos, a water safety section, and 22 newly drawn maps locating over 130 beaches and shoreline parks on the island. Destinations and maps include many of the island's popular surfing sites. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
