  Checking out the surf at sunset beach
by bryINpoland

Out of the big wave beaches, along the north shore of Oahu, Sunset beach has to be a favorite to visitors for its wide open spaces. With a beach stretching nearly 2 miles long, it is the biggest beach on the North shore.

Because of its wide open spaces, during sunset you can get great shots from the beach. Its curvey shoreline plays tricks with the light from the setting sun, throwing in beautiful shadows that seem to add a whole different dimension to the landscape.

Sunset beach is also known for its big surf, in the deep water, far off its shore. Because the waves break so deep and far out, surfers can get some of the longest rides, which the beach is famous for. Sunset beach is one of the three stops on the Triple Crown Tour. The worlds biggest surfing competition.

A great beach to see some of the worlds most awesome waves during the winter, and during the summer, its calm waters make for great swimming. Make sure you keep an eye out for sgns warning about rip tides.

Address: 59-104 Kamehameha Highway
Directions: Located along Kamehameha Highway on the North shore of Oahu. If coming from Haleiwa town, its about 2 minutes past Pipeline.
