Waimea Beach

Great beach equipped with life guards and changing facilities with outdoor showers. There is a cool rock nearby that you can jump off from. The beach drops off quickly as you enter the water, which leads to waves breaking close to the shore.  In the winter, these waves come in fast and can get pretty tall. If your not paying attention, they will knock you right off your feet. The sand is really nice and there seems to be plenty of room for everyone. The parking lot gets full pretty quick, so I ended up parking up the road a little bit.  Plan on going early. Also, a cool side note; this beach has been featured on the show "Live Rescue" on AMC.
