Fodor's Expert Review Haleiwa Alii Beach Park
The winter waves are impressive here, but in summer the ocean is like a lake, ideal for family swimming. The beach itself is big and often full of locals. Its broad lawn off the highway invites volleyball and Frisbee games and groups of barbecuers. This is also the opening break for the Triple Crown of Surfing, and the grass is often filled with art festivals or carnivals. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: surfing; swimming.
