This is the beach where my wife and I got married. The views of Rabbit Island, Makapuu Point Lighthouse, and the deep blue water were absolutely stunning.

This is seriously one of the best beaches on Oahu. It is not crowded, mostly locals use this beach. I have been several times - perfect for body surfing. Waves can get as large as Waimea. If you are looking for a fantastic beach away from tourists - head to Makapu'u!
