As it's out of the city there will be less tourists and more driving locals. Beautiful as all beaches on Oahu. Ferocious waves only for strong swimmers. This beach has restroom facilities and is quite long so you should be able to find 3 square metres of your own. Very little shade though.

I love this place, it is never dull.... the waves are dangerous and big watch signs to find out how danger is for today... watch out for surfers and borders and have some fins and you to will love this place as well!

While on the way to hike Makapu Lighthouse, stopped for a bio break before the hike since there are no facilities on that trail. Wound up seeing a beautiful sunrise. A wonderful bonus was a chocolate lab having fun splashing in the waves - and would carry his leash in his mouth so he wouldn't trip. If you are doing... More

While on Oahu, we stopped at Sandy Beach Park while out touring the island. The particular day we were there found the waves to be crashing and wild. It was amazing to see actually! There were signs up all along the beach warning people about the dangerous conditions and strong currents and very few people were venturing in other than... More

Beautiful, wonderful place to swim or just enjoy so quiet, well worth a stop. Parking off the highway. Not much shade, lots of sunshine. Water can be turbulent.

What a beautiful place to watch the sunrise. How cool is it to be watch the sunrise on one coast and the sunset on the other coast! Definitely think Sandy Beach Park is one of the best places to watch the sunrise

Lovely stretch of beach with fine sand and strong waves so there are always surfers to watch. The currents are strong so good to be cautious how far out you go. The sand gets into everything including your ears so just as well there are showers. Toilet facilities are available too but quite basic. There are no seats or shelters... More
