This was beautiful but if you are going in December, wear a life jacket unless u are an amazing swimmer and surfer, it's great to watch but water goers, beware!

I enjoyed watching the surfers, but I do not surf myself. Our four-year-old daughter built sand castles. I am glad we went, but we did not stay long.

Iconic big wave beach so I had to visit in winter. Unfortunately I missed the big wave surf comp by a couple of days. Still saw some surfers. Didn't plan on swimming as I knew the conditions would be difficult at that time of year....More

We drove by on a cloudy day. Spectacular view and you see a lot of people surfing. Really impressive. It's about 1 hour drive from Waikiki.

It's a clean and beautiful beach park. In winter the waves are too big to go swimming but it's perfect to go surfing when you are a pro.

Best to take care as the surf is quite rough. Would not recommend venturing into the water too deep unless you are a very strong swimmer.
