Waimea Bay

100% love it
One of Oahu's most famous - and sung about - beaches!
In the winter time this beach is a favorite for surfers; the rest of the year it's a haven for locals and tourists alike. Fans of the TV show "Lost" may recognize the location. Both Jan & Dean and The Beach Boys have mentioned the beach in song.

      Oahu's Most Famous North Shore Beach
      During the summer, the large sandy beach is packed with tourists, and the bay is calm and safe for swimming. The fairly large parking lot is filled with rental cars carrying visitors to this beautiful north shore beach. If you go in the winter, the surf is a powerhouse and the bay is often not recommended for swimming. But that's when you'll see the parking lot packed with locals, and pickup trucks overflowing onto the highway. It's exciting to watch the best surfers riding the huge waves here. If you're going to only one North Shore Oahu beach, this should be your pick.
