Mellow Day at Waimea Bay
Hawaii › Waimea Bay
Added by Brian Heifferon
- Escape the crowds of Waikiki
- Calm water and a beautiful beach
- Cliff jumping
If you're looking to get away from the summer crowds of Waikiki, you should consider heading to the North Shore. Although the summer is considered the off-season on this side of the island, it simply means the North Shore transforms into a gentle, family friendly 7 mile stretch of pristine beach. There is no better place to head than Waimea Bay. It's centrally located, close to Foodland, and easy to access. Once on the beach, you'll be able to enjoy some fun lounging in the ocean, snorkeling, the occasional body surf, and cliff jumping. If you spend enough time underwater, you'll likely hear the sounds of migrating humpback whales - always a cool experience.
- Beach towel

This is a fun spot to hang out for the day if your'e on the north shore. You can dive off the rock on the south end of the beach or just chill with friends. Grab a bite at pupukea grill and bring it with you to the beach.
