Beautiful Beach with, You Guessed It, Great Sunsets

Great place to view sunsets. Beautiful beach with all the amenities. Can be crowded, even at sunset. Great for suntans as well and surfer viewing with appropriate surf conditions.

I love this beach for a few reasons. It's a long stretch of sand with a lot of parking. You can sit in your car or in the bed of your truck and have a great view of the surfing or just watching the waves. Lots of people discreetly (sometimes not so discreetly) have beers and maybe lunch from the... More

The Waves...oh my god! They were so big that there was caution tape around so no one could go. One guy kayaked the waves though and that was a view.

Another iconic Hawaiian beach; with magnificent sunsets and surf, crashing waves, and surfers complimenting the experience. Parking can be tight, especially on the weekend during high waves; but still it's worth the effort to immerse oneself in the North Shore of Oahu experience.

Sunset Beach is well known among surfers and one should stop to watch the many locals and visitors catching the outside break. One can also swim or boogie board here but careful of the rocks.

Great little park with Huge Waves~! No Parking though. It was a great recommendation. We got there the day after the Volcom invitational and were able to pick up some surf shirts. There were a lot of surfers hitting the waves and we had a good time watching for a little while.

This is the quintessential North Shore beach experience. You cannot leave Oahu without taking in this beach. The beach sand is perfect and the surf is so amazing you are almost certain to see some experienced surfers riding waves.

This is another popular beach on the North Shore popular for surfers....though not as crowded as the Pipeline area. Lovely beach area though still crowded and parking was difficult here as well.
