We have lived here for a year and a half and have finally made it here, I would recommend this to anyone who wants some nice fine sand and a great place to spend the afternoon!

Crystal clear water, yellow sand, no currents/rips, no throngs of tourists, a nice beginner to intermediate-friendly wave for surfers (on the day I was there) on the northern end of the beach, ample parking where your car is in view. This beach gets a big...More

Most people who come to Oahu never get this far west of Honolulu but it's worth the drive and the traffic. There is a larger homeless population out this way but they don't bother you if you don't bother them. Come out and watch the...More

As a resident (granted Kama Aina status by businesses, but recognizing I am not truly of the land here) ... we Haole have been warned to never go to certain places. Waianae being one. Is it as unfriendly as I've been warned? Or could I go there with kokua and aloha, and expect the same in return????
