Traffic and crowds are a north shore phenomenon that isn't likely to go away anytime soon, but at least Sunset Beach is relatively uncrowded. Because it's not readily visible from the main road and parking is in small lots along a mile or so of...More

We visited Oahu 5 years ago and now we went back again in 2017 and noticed a big change - the homeless and abandon cars that are used by the homeless for their homes are out of control. There must be at least 3-4 cars...More

Very scenic, peaceful and relaxing. Steeply shelving beach and a lot of 'swell' which was great to watch roll in but need to keep a watchful eye on the smaller kids. Very 'Hawaii'. Loved it! Would definitely return.

Sunset Beach is famous for its surfing near Waimea Valley. Great place to watch the surfers and this is a really beautiful place to come. Really fantastic beach and very picturesque.

We arrived at about 6:50 for a 7:18 sunset. Plenty of parking was available. The sunset was beautiful, and the beach wasn't that crowded.

We visited in the afternoon. If you are seeking shade there is not much of it but the beach is long and there is plenty of space for visitors. We enjoyed the sun surf and sand with Orr 6-year old daughter.

This is a great beach for tanning, swimming and playing in the waves. It is a popular beach so it can get crowded. We got there around 9AM and had no trouble parking. We traveled in June. The waves were lots of fun, and we...More
