This beach is beautiful! One of the best beaches in Oahu. It was way too hot when we visited North Shore and also windy. The wind broke our umbrella that day, otherwise I'd give it 4 stars! Lol! I recommend that you bring an umbrella or tent to enjoy your day longer. Cliff jumpers had a blast. My cousins and... More

Awesome, beach was beautiful, sand was hot, water was delicious. Parking can be a problem but patience is a virtue. Was a highlight for us and the cliff jumping was awesome!

Waimea is by far the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The BEST in Oahu. I went there on June, so the water was pristine, warm, super blue, amazing!!!!!!!

This is a great place to bring the family, great park with tables, trees and the beach. The only negative is not enough parking. The water was very calm the day our family of 5 was there. Also, a vendor was selling t shirts of north shore for $5, great gift to take home.

Crystal clear water, nice people, not too crowded, a huge rock to jump from, and a place to spend the day. During the summer, Waimea Bay is a like a huge crystal clear swimming pool. The water is warm and the environment is nice and friendly. It's right in front of Waimea Valley where you can see plants and animals... More

This is a truly beautiful beach on the Northshore of Oahu and well worth the drive up there from Waikiki. It has a car park but is limited and fills up quickly, so plan to get there early. One activity is to watch the thrill seekers jumping into the water high from this group of rocks at the South end... More
