Our rental house was right on Chun's Beach. We loved waking up to the surfers already out on the water and watching them catch a wave. We climbed down across the rocks toward the other beach and caught sea turtles napping.

This is where my daughter did her surf lessons. It was not crowded at all and the waves were great for beginners. Not such a good swimming location though so I would go elsewhere if that is what you are looking for.

Small access point for this beach located on the North shore of Oahu. Not many amenities and parking is available.

Kids took surfing lessons here with Sea to Board. It is a nice beach to watch surfing our hang out in the sand. Surf is rough, beware. But worth a stop.

We came across this place when we went to Uncle Bryan's Surf School. Very nice beach. Great for beginning surfers. Has lifeguard stations, but limited facilities (bathrooms, etc.) Nice to get away from the crowds in Waikiki.

I took my very first surf lesson here and was pleased with the pretty constant waves. However, the bottom was full of sharp rocks! I know if you land correctly it shouldn't be a problem, but it was fairly shallow and I couldn't avoid hitting/touching the bottom at times. I got pretty bad cuts on my foot. I can't imagine swimming would be too enjoyable in that either. The sand on the beach was nice and soft though! Free parking on the road.

Terrible place to park your car and go to the beach. There are constant car robberies in broad daylight and especially at night. Not safe at all. Go at your own risk!

The beach is great - actually felt like the sand was soft like fine sugar...hmmm.
Anyway, it's definitely a beach to check out while on the north shore.
When you opt for surfing lessons, chances are this is where you'll be instructed to meet.
There's alot of it going on here and it's fun to watch.
But there's definitely coral and it does not have feelings about you. :)
So listen to your instructors. A few people came out with some nasty cuts because they didn't listen.

It is a good sized beach with plenty of spots to stake out and chill if you're not surfing and just want to swim. But again. watch for the coral and the rocks.

Parking can get filled fast as it's all across the street - be careful crossing over.

Good spot for beginning surfers on certain, calmer days in the winter. Be careful going out without any guidance because the reef and rocks WILL hurt you if you are not falling flat and are not aware of where they are. Great surf spot, but keep little kids from going too far into the water.

This North Shore beach has beautiful white sands with crystal clear water. I was here in August and the waters were relatively calm. Winter months I hear it's a different story.

There are large clusters of rocks scattered throughout the area making surf play hazardous. You can easily find pockets of sand surrounded by rocks to play in but boogy boarding in the surf would be dangerous.

There is a surfing school operating on the beach and a ton of surfers riding waves far from the shoreline. They also rent boards.

Parking is a challenge as it seems to be with all North Shore beaches. And the beach is easy to miss. There are lifeguards.

Walk around the bend away from the surf school and you will find plenty of empty beach.

Get comfortable and enjoy incredible sunsets.
