Stayed 2 weeks (Feb.-Mar.2014) just between Sunset and Pipeline. Great spot for watching waves and Humpback whales and of course Surfers. Not a great spot for I experienced swimmers as there is a strong undertow and rip. If you like to watch big waves there's not much better.

OK this isn't really much of a 'park' but it is the best place on the Islands for pulling your car up
to the beach...open the windows...let in the sea air...and be amazed with the scene. Put some Hawaiian music on your radio for extra flavor.

You are 'on the beach' without getting out of your car. In the Winter from Nov to March you can usually watch the most amazing surfing on waves that are totally awesome. In the Summer
kick off your shoes get out of the car walk down and put your pinkies in the water and go for a dip.

If you want to see toned beautiful surfers this is the place. They are walking by with their boards, on their bikes, on their skate boards, wheels of every kind. Yummy mommies with their kids in SUV chairs, hunk dads on their beach bikes. All very laid back; what you think of as 'California' but in fact not easily available there anymore. This a beach experience for anyone
who can park a car diagonally. Worth an hour easy!!!! You can usually get a cold coconut for with a straw for drinking from the Locals who hang out...other than this bring your own.

Love to stop here and watch the surfers and catch a few rays, but be careful.....the undertow is incredibly strong here. Definitely worth a stop when driving around the island of Oahu.

I visited in January. There was no swimming because of the undercurrent but watching the surfers was worth the trip. It's a great beach and certainly worth visiting. Tip:If you are driving a rental car, do not leave ANYTHING valuable in the car because of thefts. Open your trunk when you arrive for a few seconds in case anyone is scoping out the tourists so they know there is nothing to break into your car for.

Beautiful beach; a great place to hang out and watch surfers tackle huge winter waves. Not a place you'd go swimming in the winter, but it's still wonderful to visit and relaxing. You can see the sunset too. Easy to recommend!
