My favorite beach on Oahu. Great swimming beach in the summer, with winter being big surf and surfer/boogie boarder viewing. Nice beach park. Parking lot can fill quickly but there is some parking along the road. Water gets deep fast and it is not always...More

Waimea bay is a beautiful beach any time of the year. The other day I drove over to sit and watch the waves (over 40 feet)...it was peaceful...though many other folks were out and about and this made parking and traffic an issue. Public restrooms...More

Great spot to swim and body surf if the surf is calm, it can get large waves and be closed from swimming. Parking can be an issue so I would get there early and bring and umbrella if you need shade.
