Waimea Bay, Haleiwa

4.7
#1 of 8 in Parks in Haleiwa
Beach Nature / Park
Featuring large waves and surfing competitions, Waimea Bay hugs a powdery beach bordered by tropical greenery. Depending on the weather, the ocean can be completely calm, or you can encounter 15 m (50 ft) waves. Visit the beach to lounge in the sun or have a picnic, or walk through the nearby gardens and look at the waterfalls. When the water is calm, you can also swim and snorkel. Beware of the local tradition of rock-jumping--although many visitors do it, the local authorities strictly advise against it. Parking space at the site is very limited. Put Waimea Bay on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Haleiwa vacation builder.
