Lots of warm, white sand. Few tourists, a few trees near the road. The only problem was the bathrooms were across the highway. We gladly moved our spots on the beach so a local kids canoe club could come straight down the beach to the water.

What a great beach. Not very crowded and excellent for boogie boarding. Tons of marine wildlife around.

We swam with sea turtles and dolphins for free. Awesome beach very clear water and lots of active reef systems. We swam with a pod of about 30 dolphins for several minutes and watched fish cleaning 6 turtles.

This is a great beach! not too many people, great for surfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, boogy boarding, and swimming. Also, at the very end of the road is the beginning of a GREAT hike to Ka' ena point. Ka'ena has a bird sanctuary at the end of it and Monk seals and great views all the way down

Great beach, like it's not crowded; well known for its high waves and surfing. Not for families with small children.

Beautiful beach, never crowded. Usually surfers when the surf is up. I have seen stingrays in the surf.

I was heading to Yokohama beach then came cross this wonderful beach which offers both good waves for suffers and flat area for kids. I can not wait to take my two daughters there next time.

We went to this beach twice during our stay. Both times we were able to park under a big tree and have some shade to escape the sun! The first trip, the water was very nice and the waves were not too big, but there were some on the other side from us where people were surfing. Great place to... More

Waters are tough for swimming with a shore break (make sure kids have lifevests or floatation devices as the undertow can be very strong) We saw turtles swimming in the waves just off shore and whales further out. Combination of reef and sand. Stunning sunset!

My wife and I were in Oahu for nine days. We approached the selection of beach each day based on wanting to make sure we visited beaches on the North, West, East and South of Oahu. The well known beach on the Southern side is Waikiki. The well known beaches on the Eastern side are: Waimanalo, Kailua and Lanikai. The... More
