A very nice beach on the North Shore. It has good sand and plenty of room. Typically summertime the waves are such that good place for children. For the more adventurous you can jump off the rock into the ocean. Maybe a 20-25 foot leep. I've touched bottom a few times, but it is soft sand. There are not a... More

This is one of the prettiest beaches on the island. The only downside is that the parking lot fills up fast!

The setting is gorgeous, the water is constantly changing color, and the swimming is great. Parking is limited. Go by 10 am on a weekday.

My boyfriend and I went here while in the north shore and this was one of our favourite places. Its free to park and free to access. The beach is so nice and turquoise and the sand is white. There is also some waves here to make it fun to play in. But not too big waves where it would... More

An amazing beach in a very pretty cove. The waters seem to be less rough then at other beaches in the area probably because of the cove. Even if you don't want to swim it is a beautiful setting, very well worth a few photos! It has a fairly large paved parking so easy access!

Great little beach to chill out and have a swim with the family. Waimea Bay s very easy to find and has a small car park with a good amount of spots... If you can't find one then just wait in your car for a few mins as people are coming and going all the time. There's a big toilet/change... More
