Create an itinerary including Sunset Beach Park
Suit up, grab your board (or flippers), and hit the waves at Sunset Beach Park, one of the island's most legendary surfing spots. Nestled along Oahu's wild northern shore, the beach boasts long stretches of soft sand, swaying palm trees, and wide-open ocean views. Depending on the season, surfers flock to the area to catch some of its towering waves or participate in the famous Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. You can certainly join in, if you have the proper skills and knowledge. Otherwise, indulge in some of the region's most popular snorkeling and swimming zones, or just kick back and relax on the sand. Keep in mind while in the water that the beach has very strong riptides, so always follow basic safety precautions.

  • The sand is clean and soft, the beach long, the water beautiful, but oh, do plan to be there for the sunsets. They are spectacular here.

  • Came for the famous tree, stayed for the beautiful beach. Got here about 10:30 on a weekday and there was almost no one on the beach. It was pretty crowded by noon. Good spot to swim, surf or relax.
  • Nice beach, Restrooms available. Pictures are of Sand- zoomed in from my s9 phone, so much beauty and depth, I advise everyone to check sand with their phones so much hidden beauty!
