BRIEF HISTORY OF BELLOWS AFS
On August 19, 1933, General Douglas MacArthur memorialized individuals for their extraordinary heroism by naming flying fields in their honor. “The auxiliary flying field at Waimānalo Military Reservation, Territory of Hawaiʻi, as designated as Bellows Field in honor of Second Lieutenant Franklin Barney Bellows, 50th Aero Squadron.” Lieutenant Bellows was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for extraordinary heroism in action near Saint-Mihiel, France.

Bellows air force beach is breathtaking. Absolutely beautiful place to relax, body board, boogie board, swim, taking the Sun, camp, stay in a cabin, or just take a walk on the beach. The sand is clean, white & soft and the water is turquoise. It has shower and bathroom facilities plus lifeguard. This by far the most practical but a gorgeous beach you can find on the island. The waves are not too big everyone can enjoy swimming the ocean.Those who are stationed here are very lucky indeed! Please note that no pets are allowed on the Air Force Station. And the sunrise is absolutely amazing!
There is a shop, a subway, a snack shop, and a mini golf as well.
We spent half of the day swimming at Bellows Air force and pack everything that we need to the beach, this is open to the public (weekend only) so when you get there, find your spot but make sure to keep an eye on your valuable belongings.
