Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach is not for the faint of heart (or most tourists). If you are not familiar with Strong shore breaks don’t go in the water here. Look at how much water is behind this wave. When you eat it, you eat it hard.At Sandy’s, there is a wide sandy beach, large grassy fields, and potent winds, which result in some of the best kite flying on the island. But lurking off shore are some of the meanest waves in all of Hawaii. The waves aren’t large (4-6 feet in the summer), but they come in hard and fast.This makes Sandy’s THE SPOT for Boogie Boarding and Body surfing. But be warned, people have gotten seriously hurt when the wave crashes on top of them and slams them underwater to hit the sand below. But that doesn’t stop the flood of locals on the weekends to try their luck at Sandy’s.
