General Safety

Hale Koa Hotel is a military resort property, with Force Protection practices in place. You can check for the latest travel advisories that may affect this area. Also, Hawaii is, of course, surrounded by water. When you explore Waikiki Beach and other beaches around Oahu, please note the posted warning signs and take precautions.

The state owned beachfront at Hale Koa Hotel does not have a lifeguard, so be mindful of water conditions and supervise children at all times. Hale Koa Hotel has free personal flotation vests for children available for guests to check out from the Main Pool area, but you still need to be with young children in the ocean. Also, if you’re going into the water, whether it’s for swimming, surfing, snorkeling or other sport, always go with a buddy. It’s never advised to swim alone in any condition.

Hawaii may be paradise but we still are a big city. Follow these common sense tips to protect your belongings.

Keep valuables in your hotel room safe.

Keep an eye on your belongings while on the beach, don't leave them unattended.

If you must leave items in the trunk of your vehicle, place them there prior to arriving at your destination.

You can visit the Hawaii Visitors and Conventions Bureau for local safety tips.
