Passionate surfers should not miss Banzai Pipeline, a reef break off Sunset Beach notorious for giant waves. Waves grow to such heights that surfers can tube ride through the curls. Be warned that only very experienced surfers should attempt the waves at this destination, where the world's deadliest waves have killed several surfers and photographers. That said, even those without much interest in surfing can admire the action from the shore. Swim with caution and pay attention to the signs. Banzai Pipeline is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • This is a very iconic location. Many surf boarding competitions take place here. I loved watching the waves and the surfers.
