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.

The day we visited there were signs posted preventing everyone from entering the water due to the high surf. However, just watching the beautiful water and waves was enough to make it worth or while. Just gorgeous!

We picked up dinner at the food trucks a little ways past and brought it to sunset beach. We enjoyed watching the surfers surf the big waves and watch the sunset. Perfect way to end a day.

Parking is at a premium so snag a spot wherever you can. Admission was free the day we were there but perhaps it depends on the event.
