It's a beautiful and relaxing beach, just another one in Hawaii. The water is so calm and clean and sand is so white. There is no amenities though, so go prepared.

It was a nice stop on our tour around Oahu. We didn’t actually spend a lot of time there but the view we saw was magnificent.

We spent many hours on the beach. The first day the beach was full of plastic due to a wave of garbage that hit the day before. Very scary. After a few days, the beach was clean and we enjoyed our time there very much.

There are no hotels near this beach. Look for a vacation house to rent if you are interested in staying in this area.
