Waimea Bay on Oahu’s North Shore can be a calm and relaxing place to chill during your trip to Hawaii with the exception of the winter months when the waves can reach heights of 30+ feet. This is the home of the largest, most dangerous and most spectacular surf in the world.
During the calm summer months Waimea Bay is a playground of fun for freedivers, S.C.U.B.A. divers, and those who desire to jump off “da Big Rock” or “Jump Rock” – a rock that is about 30 feet high above the water and is perfectly positioned in the bay (for use at your own risk!). You can also find rock climbers practicing their skills on the cliff and in the dry cave on the beach. The Bay, as well as Three Tables, Pupukea, & Shark’s Cove are protected waters. The diversity of life in these waters is astounding.
Enjoy your visit to Waimea Bay in much the same way these friends did, but remember as mentioned earlier, if you’re gonna jump “da Big Rock” be sure and do it with caution!
