If you know what you're doing - On a big day, Sandy's is the finest body-surfing beach out there...if you don't know what you are doing - expect a trip to the hospital and maybe paralysis. I;ve seen two broken necks, a few broken backs, and at least a dozen broken arms and torn shoulders from even seasoned guys taking... More

Love to see the locals boogie board here. I'm always entertained. Beautiful shell sand and course but walks are great. Lifeguards are attentive and will approach you to let u know the conditions of the water. In case you missed the board warnings lol

Sandy is the best beach on East Oahu and maybe the best on the island. Fun waves to play in but be careful, it's a big shore break and can be dangerous for anyone who isn't careful. Great to watch the surfers and body surfers who handle the big waves there with amazement.

If you don't want to be at a crowded beach this is a good place to be. The water can be tough on someone, like me, who isn't accustomed to riptides and the works.

Had a great time just lounging. I did try and test the water even with the danger sign posted. Big mistake. I'm a great swimmer but couldn't match mother nature. I was tossed like a ragdoll. So then I spent the remaining time laying on the beach. When I got ready to leave the waves had calmed quite a bit,... More

I have never felt sand as soft as the sand here. The beach was not very crowded. Perfect beginner waves. There are rocks just inside the water line, so wear water shoes.

Sandy Beach is little pass Hanauma Bay. It's frequent visited by local residence to hang out and to surf. There are waves, not too high, not too low. Nice relaxing place bec it's not crowded. The sand is so soft and white. What's available at the beach park: - Parking - Rinse shower - Sometimes there's food truck

Love this place. Such a great place to watch Hawaiian body surfers and the regular surfers that frequent this beach often. The waves are extremely violent at times and give off a loud crash. What is so nice is to just sit on the beach, soak up the sun and listen to the power of the water. It is just... More

If you like womping, you'll love this beach. This is not body surfing on regular waves with fins and such. This is shorebreak womp with heavy swell and current. I'm in San Diego and am blessed to have two great womping spots here, Wind n Sea and Marine Street. Sandy Beach is just as great as my home spots but... More
