  • We went to the overlook of the beach. This was one of the most beautiful places we visited on Oahu. The southeast coast of Oahu is very beautiful.

  • Was lucky enough to get walk in tickets. If you try to go this way, be there BY 6:30am. We were lucky enough to get the last 4 tickets in! What a great day!

  • Beautiful scenery. Peaceful, and relaxing. 10 minutes walk to the bus station cross highway 72 at Sea Life Park, or parking is alongside the highway right by the beach.
  • We were here in November 2006!. Nice place to relax. Quiet beach and waves for surfing.
  • Rough waves, more for surfing and similar water sports. Beautuful place for pics, camping, and relaxing by the beach.
  • I would say this is one of the under rated beaches. Best for surfing and spending time with your company. Currents are better than sandy beach ( they are not as rough as sandy beach). Also, a beautiful view of the sunrise with cool breezes. Do not forget to go to a view spot to get areal view of the beach
  • The beach has great waves! There is no shade at this beach but it’s worth the trip.
