A nice calm and populated beach, lots of people enjoy going in the water. Nice big beautiful sunset. Good views, I just like relaxing with friends and watching the sun go down, so much fun

We went during January, school was still out part of the trip and most beaches were too busy except this one and it was perfect. When school started back up for the locals traffic got heavier but places became less crowded

Beautiful beach on the North Shore! Especially in the evening for the sunsets. Great for photos! The beach can get busy so come early! Parking is across the street from the beach and has restrooms and spots to rinse off.

Though we didn't witness the sunset, it was a nice beach. There are other great beaches in the area.

This place is magical. Little tiny crabs just cruise around in the water but there are not enough of them to be an annoyance. The water is incredibly blue. The waves were big enough to surf but far enough out that it was calm swimming...More

Sunset Beach is one of our top five beaches on the island of Oahu. Vans World Cup surfing was going on when we visited Sunset in late November (2018). Seeing a big waves surfing contest is a memorable experience. However, in the off-surf season times,...More

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.
