Just spent a beautiful morning at this beach. There is some lovely shade to be had or tons of sun if your liking. The water was great to be in and bounce up and down with the waves. We got there before 9 am and...More

The beach is super gorgeous and at the north shore area. The entire region is so worthwhile to visit and of course palm trees always mean vacations! It is easy to find on your drive going north.

It’s never that crowded. In the summer you can float and swim. The water feels great. And you must stay for the sunset. There are food trucks all over. And also Teds bakery just up the road. Have fun

Worth a visit for the iconic crooked palm-tree alone! Stunning beach, whatever the time of day, great waves - everything you'd want in Hawaii. Ironically, less crowded that the beaches outside hotels, exactly why you need to get out and explore!

Parking is at a premium so snag a spot wherever you can. Admission was free the day we were there but perhaps it depends on the event.
