Waimea Bay, located on the North Shore of Oahu, is a beach spot like no other. There you'll find a mix of locals, tourists and the occasional turtle. A day spent there in the summer is a day spent well, soaking up the hot sun, snorkeling with the fish in the calm waters and jumping off the rock that outcrops the bay.
In the winter however, it is totally different scene with high surf making the waves as big as 20-30 feet. That is why Waimea Bay one of the most popular places to surf, with some of the best surfers in the world gathering to take on the largest swells in the world.
Here is a video of Waimea bay and some of the activities we were up to when we spent a day there during this summer.
