We arrived at Sunset beach in the afternoon on a stunning day in January. There was lovely view along the coast, seeing the different breaks close to the shore and further out. Waves were around a metre so nothing huge. Pretty rough for swimming though....More

In the winter, the surf is up. Lovely beach, but not for swimming. Rather take a walk and watch the experienced surfers catch a wave.

A great big long beach with lovely golden sand, fun crashing waves and some great surf action. Some beautiful properties in the beachfront - oh, to have one of those properties - let me win the lottery please!

Out of all the beaches we visited in Oahu, Sunset Beach was our favorite. Spectacular views, clean soft sand and ample parking made this beach a true Hawaiian gem.

Parking is at a premium so snag a spot wherever you can. Admission was free the day we were there but perhaps it depends on the event.
