Best place to see the sunset, hence the name. Usually it's not too busy and there's parking on the side of the road not far away.

Ample parking in lot, and bathroom facilities available. If you're there for the sunset you'll have one of the best views of it on Oahu!

Went there for a full day. The beach was beautiful, and not crowded at all. We had to watch the youngest kid a bit due to the waves but it was only fun. Food was availible 5 minutes away at Teds bakery.

Small parking area off the road but always able to find a spot. Hope over the low wall to some beautiful sand overlooking the north shore. Public bathroom is nearby. If you are there for sunset, this is the place to see Mother Nature at her best! Lifeguards on duty too at times of the day.

Could not believe how much plastic trash is all along the beach!! They should clean up the beach along this side! I wonder if they every have beach clean up, I would rather go to a beach without all the trash !

This beach has a very laid back and locals and transplant beach bum(I dont mean that as a negative) feel. Very casual and fun. It gets a little busier right before sunset and it is worth seeing.

The park is more of a bathroom, and parking stop. Or if you are into Pokemon, you can collect balls at the sign..... The beach across the street is the main attraction. Easy walk to water, and there are some waves in the summer, and massive waves in the winter. Do not miss Sunset Beach

January is Hawaii's winter and the surf if very rough and high big waves during this time. Surfing championships often are taking place during this time. The beach has roar and spray but heed the signs to stay out of the water, as it can be dangerous as well as beautiful.

Nice beach even in the summer. Good waves for boogie boarding or surfing. Mother's Beach is calmer nearby, to the northeast. Use the same parking lot as Sunset. Mother's was good for smaller swells to no swells when our kids just wanted to swim or float- even had a picnic table under a shade tree. The shoreline has smooth, flat... More
