Waimea Bay is legendary in every way. It’s where Hollywood goes to film on Oahu, where pros ride big waves in the winter, and where adventurous souls hurl themselves off a rock into the ocean. But it’s also a wondrous North Shore nook to gather with friends and Ohana to watch the sunset. The lifeguard station is also a popular place to take photos, as large fishing floats dangle from tree limbs like all-season ornaments.
Tip: Stay nearby at Ke Iki Beach Bungalows so you can play at Waimea Bay whenever you please.
