Oahu's Sunset Beach is one of the most popular and longest sand beaches on the island, running two miles long and 300 feet wide. It's a famous winter surfing location where international competitions are hosted each year and the incredible peaks can reach as high as 20 feet. With the pounding waves, surf season is a dangerous time to swim along this coast and the notorious "Sunset rip" offshore current has kept the lifeguards very busy over the years.
The ocean's waters are calm, clear, and beautiful during the summer months when swimming and snorkeling are safe next to the soft white sand and around the natural tidepools and reef. Lifeguards are on duty and will post flags to warn you about ocean conditions, and there is also a picnic area nearby.
Sunset Beach is located at 59-104 Kamehameha Hwy. in Paumalu.
