Kamehameha Highway, North Shore
Located east of Waimea Bay and next to Sharks Cove, this beach is especially beautiful during the summer months when the ocean is calmer and the reef system can easily be explored. Scuba diving, snorkeling and wading in the numerous tidepools makes this a very crowded and popular area. Lava tubes, ledges, and sea arches can be found just outside of the reef area. A small sand beach marks the entrance to this unique recreation area.

During the winter waves can reach 40-50 foot on the north shore. They pound the rocks and reefs along this coastline. If you suspect large surf, DO NOT venture into the water. NEVER turn your back to the ocean. The waves are constantly changing and you can never predict their next move.
