Sunset Beach Park, Haleiwa

(4.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Suit up, grab your board (or flippers), and hit the waves at Sunset Beach Park, one of the island's most legendary surfing spots. Nestled along Oahu's wild northern shore, the beach boasts long stretches of soft sand, swaying palm trees, and wide-open ocean views. Depending on the season, surfers flock to the area to catch some of its towering waves or participate in the famous Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. You can certainly join in, if you have the proper skills and knowledge. Otherwise, indulge in some of the region's most popular snorkeling and swimming zones, or just kick back and relax on the sand. Keep in mind while in the water that the beach has very strong riptides, so always follow basic safety precautions.
