North Shore Oahu Beaches | Sunset Beach

This is one of the best Oahu beaches for many things depending on the season. Sunset Beach is on Oahu's famous North Shore and offers a variety of personalities.

In the summer months, it is usually very calm and great for swimming, bodysurfing, and boogie-boarding...there is also terrific snorkeling on the reef right offshore.

The wide pristine sandy beach just jumps out at you as you drive down Kam can't help but stop and take it all in. Parking is easily accessible right on the side of the road and showers and restrooms are located across the street.
