During the summer, this is a great place to swim. There's a nice deep dropoff so you can tread water to your heart's content. On the right there's some reef where the visibility is great for snorkeling and you can see lots of fish of all types!
During the winter, watch the surfers catch the big swells!
Beaches on the North Shore from west to east are: Haleiwa Alii Beach, a less-appealing beach, but great spot to learn to surf; Turtle Beach, a small beach with lots of rocks and some swimming; Waimea Bay, where you can have an incredible, refreshing swim in the clearest water, on a large yellow-sand beach; Three Tables and Shark's Cove, also a nice swim, and a small, shady beach; Pipeline Beach, where you can watch surf culture; Sunset Beach, which also has large winter waves for surfers; and Turtle Bay Hilton Beach, a pretty and magical spot but with more chance of bad weather.
Sunset beach is alongside Kamehameha Hwy. Pull off into the row of parking spaces along the road.
There are restrooms and showers across the street.
There is no shade.
This is an interactive map, you can zoom and move it.
