This is a gorgeous beach to spend a day. Just amazing blue sea and the mountains are in a backdrop. Just a perfect scenario. I really recommend to go and enjoy the place. Not so many people, you can chill and relax with no crowds.

Nearly all the Leeward Oahu beaches are very pretty settings with the mountains as a backdrop, and some have offshore islands adding to the beauty. Except for weekends, very few people on the beach and a great refreshing contrast to Waikiki and its obvious drawbacks....More

This is a stunning white sand beach, with the Koolau mountains as the back drop. The water is crystal clear. There is a restroom. Please be sure to lock your vehicles and do not leave valuables in the car.
