  • The views from this beach are breathtaking, from the mountains, the small islands just off shore, and the waves crashing over volcanic rocks. Great place to catch a wave or some sun. 
  • Not the best beach on oahu, but if you have sparse time on oahu and want to espace the overfilled beaches of hnl - it is a good choise!
  • A great beach to play in the waves. Be aware of the sometimes strong current and Shore break. The waves make this beach one of my favorites.
  • Absolutely beautiful beach pushed up against the mountains. You can kayak out to the sanctuary island and back. It's not usually crowded either :)
  • Nice and clean beach, nice for snorkeling and also for swimming (if the waves are low).
  • Fun to play in the surf. Good waves
