Stopped here to do some jumping off the rocks. It can be shallow if the tide is out, so be safe. I went in 5 times and it was great! parking can be a pain, so come early.

Waimea Bay is located in the North Shore area of the Hawaiian island of Oahu. It features a very large beach which is uncommon in this area. There is a small parking lot with fierce competition for spots. You can also park along the road...More

This beach is close to the valley, a nice and small beach, not so crowded, with a rock to jump from. If you come along and you as parents want to visit The Valley, you can leave your older children there. It might be better...More

Not a good snorkeling beach. The waves pick up in November. Shark Cove is good for snorkeling.
