First of all everyone in my family jumped off the rock. Not me. I am chicken. This beach is great. Sand, nice water. No rocks. It has a great unofficial attraction, jumping off the rock. We were staying in Waikiki Beach which has a lot...More

We visited Waimea Bay many times during the week we spent on Oahu. It was the tops with the teens. Parking is difficult unless you arrive early or late. (after 6:00 p.m.) Great for jumping off the rocks, wonderful for swimming, cool for just people...More
