The North Shore of Oahu has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, yet the famous Dr. Beach never names them in his list of top beaches because of the big surf during the our winter months. Dr. Beach is wrong. Most of our beaches have lifeguards, and in the summer months virtually all the North Shore beaches are super safe. For example the North Shore’s Waimea Bay has the best and largest sandy beach of any beach in Hawaii. it resembles a gigantic swimming pool in the summer months with a sandy bottom and sea turtles swimming near the edges. Dr. Beach should recognize the North Shore Beaches for what they are and include a warning to always consult a lifeguard when entering the water or better yet hire a surf instructor to teach you to surf.
