Beautiful surf

This is one of many wonderful beaches to watch surfers. And, a wonderful place to walk the beach and find peace.

Watched a surfing competition in mid-February. Traffic was heavy but we found a parking spot fairly quickly. Beautiful sand and water colors. Spent a relaxing afternoon in the shade watching the surfers.

This was a great beach to visit. Especially, as obviously stated, to catch a great sunset. Also saw tons of awesome sealife!

The sand is soft, the water is blue, and so clear! In the winter, the waves are big, but you can still enjoy the water, or just work on your tan. For being a popular being, it doesn't feel overly crowded either.

I flew to Hawaii in June of 2009 for the very first time. After we landed and grabbed a rental car we made the 30 minute drive to our hotel in Waikiki Beach. We were exhausted from the 5 hour time difference. The next morning we decided to drive to the famus North Shore. Our destination was a place called... More

My favorite beach!!! Love the water here for boogie boarding! Love watching the surfers. The sunsets are spectacular. I usually don't have much of a problem with finding a parking spot along the road. BE CAREFUL to watch the signs and DON'T park in the No Parking areas!

There is currently construction happening in this area roadside and parking is a little sketchy but this is Sunset Beach and you have to at least stop and take it in. Lots of places to eat in the area and great surf most of the time.

The North Shore of Oahu is truly one of the best stretches of beach on earth and probably is home to the best waves. The waves were truly the best I've ever seen. The signs strongly advised not swimming due to the waters power but I feel this is debatable and depends on the weather conditions of the day at... More

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
