Located off Kuhio Highway (Hwy 56) at Wainiha.

One of the most popular North Shore beaches - has provided the background for many movies including "South Pacific". The beach is 3/4-mile-long, very wide, and backed by lushly vegetated cliffs. No protective reef - frequent high surf causes extremely dangerous water conditions.
