Known as the most famous big wave surf site in the world, Waimea Beach is rarely short of locals, big time surfers, and any other dare devil who wants to try out waves up to 40 feet high during the winter months.

Now during the summer months or calm months, it's the exact opposite. Visitors can experience a very peaceful and enjoyable day of swimming. It's also in the perfect condition to do a little snorkeling, but stay in the bay area because the sea gets cloudy. A popular cliff diving spot is located at the giant rock near the left end of the beach. A No Jumping sign is there to warn you due to the fall being pretty far we wouldn't recommend going this route.

Waimea Bay Beach Park has full facilities and a lifeguard. It's 5 miles north of Hale'iwa or 36 miles from Kane'ohe on Hwy 83.
