Stopped here leaving Haleiwa. Love watching the people jump off the big rock; something I have done in years past. Great view & water was very comfortable. (Quite frigid in spots but overall pleasant).

Clear water, soft sand. One of our favorite beaches in Oahu. Come here for cliff jumping! Everyone does it :) It's a lot of fun. There is extra parking across the street for $10.

This beach has life guards, bathrooms and showers. They also have free parking... if you can find a spot. Once the lot is full, people start parking along the highway wherever they can find room.

We spent an entire day at Waimea Bay with first half on the beach and the second half doing the walk up through the Waimea Valley. The bay side offers beach as well as some cliff jumping (30'?). Don't go there for the snorkeling -...More
