This beach is truly off the beaten path. You need a car to get here as the City Bus only goes up to Makaha Beach. Yokohama Bay is about an hour drive from Honolulu. It is one of the most remote beaches on the island and never crowded.
In the winter months the beach gets pounded by high surf. This is the time when many local surfers come here to experience some thrills in the churning white water. Lifeguards are present most of the time and for good reason. The rocky sea bottom, strong currents and high waves are dangerous especially for beginning surfers.
