Winter is for surfing (enormous waves) while in the summer months Wiamea is a stunning spot for a day at the beach in beautiful surroundings.

Hands down this is one of my all time favorite North Shore beaches that can be reached without much trouble. I would highly recommend going early in the morning because as the day progresses parking becomes all but impossible. In the spring and summer the waves aren't very big and the sandy bottom makes it a really nice swimming beach.... More

We enjoyed our time at this beach park. It's popular, so parking was a bit of a problem, but the views are well worth it. They have a public bathroom, so that's a plus, too.

This beach is perfect! No sharp coral! We drove all day to find a beach that didn't have coral so the kids could play safely. The waves can get rough, so bring floaties for the little ones. Also, there's not much sand before the drop off. That was perfect for us. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was... More

I love to rent a car and drive to Waimea Beach park for a swim and dive off of the rock cliffs. I like my beaches a little wild, out of the way, rustic, and under-developed, and this place hits the mark. I found a free bus from the Hilton hotel to the attraction across the street from Waimea Beach,... More

A big bunch of my extended family were all staying on the North Shore recently and we decided to head to Waimea Bay for the day. We all had such a great time snorkelling, relaxing on the sand and jumping off the rock. We got up close and personal to three turtles only a few feet off shore, and whilst... More

Always passed by this beach but this time decided to stop and boy was it worth it. Beach is not loaded with toms of people, and it's nice to just watch the big waves crashing the shore. It does get rough in the water due to the large waves and currents that pull back out to the ocean. So the... More

I went there on April, the sea was flat, so it was the way I like it! The water is really clear and we saw turtles too! It has also a rock really good to jump. It is good to go early because of the parking, and if you you're a Eddie Aikau's fan you must go there!

Very popular spot-but when I was there the waves crashed big time very close to shore but if not in the water quite a show. Parking can be hard to come by but if patient and have time you can wait for a parking spot to become available.
