This aptly named beach and park was beautiful. You have a great view of the evenings sunset and the beach is quite long. I imagine in peak times it is very busy. Parking can be a bit difficult, as it is at many beaches. I don't think we went to any beach in Hawaii that was not spotless. There was... More

This place was awesome! We were blown away by the size of the waves. Apparently the day before the surf was flat! We had came on a day with 20-15 ft waves! I couldn't image playing in those killer waves. Certainly it a spot to swim with the family. Rest room facilities available as were some food trucks across the... More

Great views, rough surf. Swim at your own risk if at all. Great food trucks across the street. Parking is a little iffy at times as it seems to be all over Hawaii. Definitely one of our favorite spots.

Best sunset views and beautiful water. I was staying across the street so I was here a lot. I arrived when it was no waves and left when the currents and waves were up. Beautiful beach ....

We spent a couple of afternoons here, watching the sun go down as the children played. It was truly amazing.

Easy to access right on the highway. We only swam here once during our stay as was a bit too rough for my young kids to swim in (8 and 4.5 years), instead opting for the calm of Sharks Cove. Always lots of people here, especially at sunset. Definitely lives up to its name as we watched a stellar sunset... More

This is a good location for experienced body boarding, not as demanding as Pounders but still somewhat technical with plenty of reef to be aware of. To the right of the parking area is where the locals body board over top a rather shallow reef but just to the left you can catch an occasional wave without the threat of... More
