Sandy Beach Information

Sandy Beach Information

Sandy (sometimes called Sandy's) Beach has the best waves on Oahu for experienced bodysurfers, who make the rides look easy. This beach can be treacherous, with extremely high surf, strong shorebreaks, and intense rip tide currents.

It can be a superb beach for swimming if the water is calm, but currents in front of Keawaakio Cove are always strong and waves can pound swimmers into the rocks where lava juts out around the point. Lifeguards work hard here, where swimmers are rescued more often than at any other beach on the island. Tourists who watch the surfers at their best can sometimes mistake this as a smoother spot than it really is. Pay attention to the lifeguard flag postings around the beach that mark the surf's levels each day (green is safe, yellow is caution, and red is very dangerous).

Restrooms and parking are available at Sandy's, located at 8808 Kalanianaole Hwy. - drive east past Hawaii Kai, Hanauma Bay, and along the coast.
