That was one of the nicest beaches I saw on my Oahu private tour, I enjoyed the sightseeing from the beach, white sands and a great place to stay doing nothing but relaxing.

We spent about 2.5 hours here one morning as we were driving up the coast and enjoyed our time here. We enjoyed Lanikai beach better, but this beach had much larger surf for boarding. There was also less people here than at other beaches. It was easy to get a parking spot and just a short walk to the beach. We saw the lighthouse on the cliff and heard the hike was good, but didn't try that ourselves.

We didn't make it onto the beach, but stored at the scenic point above to take some pics. Absolutely overwhelming in beauty! The beach was not crowded at all and the waves looked so tempting, but we were just taking a scenic drive on our last day in Oahu... Please go!!!

The best Beach for body surfing or just getting tumbled in the waves. Best time is to go just after 1 as the sun will start disappearing behind the mountains providing plenty of shade. After 3 the beach can get quite crowded with the local teenagers finishing school to hit the surf. The waves are quite big there so it's great if you want to body surf them. Definitely not for kids or weak swimmers.

We liked it that is was a bit secluded, on the windward coast, beach was excellent, you could canoe all the way to Rabbit island. Hike to Makapuu lighthouse was excellent.
