Sunset Beach is well known among surfers and one should stop to watch the many locals and visitors catching the outside break. One can also swim or boogie board here but careful of the rocks.

Great little park with Huge Waves~! No Parking though. It was a great recommendation. We got there the day after the Volcom invitational and were able to pick up some surf shirts. There were a lot of surfers hitting the waves and we had a good time watching for a little while.

This is the quintessential North Shore beach experience. You cannot leave Oahu without taking in this beach. The beach sand is perfect and the surf is so amazing you are almost certain to see some experienced surfers riding waves.

This is another popular beach on the North Shore popular for surfers....though not as crowded as the Pipeline area. Lovely beach area though still crowded and parking was difficult here as well.

Sunset Beach was a brief stop on our day trip of Oahu. The waves were an incredible sight to behold! I've watched several movies about the famed waves of the North Shore and I am so happy to have finally seen them in person. Wish we could have stayed a little longer and enjoyed the sun & sand. Even with... More

What an amazing place to see particularly in the winter months. The surf is just pounding and as the pipeline turns the colors of the water are totally awesome. When we were there they were not competing that day but there were many surfers in the water and it is captivating and I could have spent the entire day watching... More

The day we visited there were signs posted preventing everyone from entering the water due to the high surf. However, just watching the beautiful water and waves was enough to make it worth or while. Just gorgeous!

With a high surf advisory in place it was fun to watch the waves crashing in the surf. There is a bit of sand to walk on but not a good place to get in the water, at least in the winter. It looks like it would be a great spot for a sunset if the conditions for one are... More

We took a drive to the north shore to see the surfing in February. We noted at our hotel that there was a surfing competition going on, but when we asked about it, were told that for the one day we were there, the competition wasn't on. We drove down to Sunset Beach to see the waves and hopefully see... More
