Waimea Bay would have to be one of my most favourite beaches to visit. On a nice day its just idyllic. The waves gently lap at the beach, there is plenty of space on the beach, the water is warm and of course the colour of the water is just amazing. On an epic day it has 20ft waves crashing through, throwing up some of the biggest surf in the world. Unfortunately, I’ve not been there on an epic day yet.
Getting to Waimea Bay is really easy as its literally a quick and easy 30min drive from Waikiki Beach and there is plenty see along the way. The pineapple plantations are along the highway and the diversion to Haleiwa to see all the surf shops and markets are well worth the trip as well.
This photo is a single image taken from my Canon 16-35 F/2.8mm lens using F13 ISO50, 1/60th sec.
I hope you enjoy it. I’d love to know your thoughts on the photo or of Waimea Bay.
