Though it has a lovely name its best to temper expectations when you arrive because the waves and under tow can result in a closed beach. The first thing I noticed walking up to the beach, after the yellow caution tape, was how loud it sounded with the waves crashing. Along with all of that is a great place to surf. Not much of a family spot.

Amazing beach to watch some surfers rip some waves in the distance. You'll see plenty of photographers with their telescoping lenses trying to catch the perfect shot from land too. Waves are big and strong, so be careful.Recommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts

North Shore Oahu is famous for it's beaches and waves. Surf, sand, play, and relax is the motto up here. You might be able to spot a few pro surfers or beach goers like the monk seals :).

Awesome beach for surfing and body boarding. The waves can get big here, so if you're not a good swimmer, you may want to stay on the beach. Sometimes the water can be calm, so you can go in if the conditions are mild.

One of the island's most picturesque beaches. There are world famous waves breaking on the point to the right, and swimming and plenty of beach space for everyone else. A must do stop if you are cruising the north shore. You can't miss it, because the beach abuts the road.

When leaving for Sunset Beach on the North Shore the best way to go is to took the most scenic and beautiful way called "DA EAST SIDE CRUZ". Starting from Hanauma Bay and working your way along the coast until you reach the Kalanianaole Highway that intersects Kailua and work its way to Kamehameha Highway which continues the journey along the coast to the North Shore. Your final destination, Pupukea and Sunset Beach. Sunset Beach is two miles of golden sand and waves. In the Winter the Waves can be deadly so please watch yourself and pay attention to all POSTED SIGNS! In the Summer however, the ocean and waves are flat and calm and can be a pretty good place to snorkel. Sunset Beach naturally has some one of the most beautiful sunsets on Hawaii and is defined by it's single HANGING PALM TREE over the beach. This PALM is over 100 years old so please respect it....NEVER EVER...CLIMB IT! O how I wouldn't want to imagine you bringing down an ICON in front of all the locals...There is plenty of FREE parking right in front of the beach right off the street and in front of the beach walk and bike path. Sunset beach is famous for many reasons, the incredible surf in the winter, the beautiful calm blue clarity of the water in summer and the amazing sunsets all year. I continue to wake up every day with being blessed to be able to visit such places as Sunset Beach, the memories here will last me beyond my grave. The Sunsets are breath taking and in those warm spiritual moments one can't help but dream. For those who vacation here, visiting this beach and sharing a sunset together will be a life long memory. For someone like me who is blessed to have the chance to see a sunset here everyday, it brings me back to when all this was only a dream and not my reality. It brings me back to all the passion and desire I had when I first wanted to be a permanent part of these islands. It reminds me of why I fought so hard and so long to have such a privilege to be able to awake in such a wondrous and amazing place everyday, my Hawai'i Nei.Recommended for:Spiritual Seekers
