Sandy Beach is located on the southeastern part of Oahu, at the base of Koko Crater, and a few minutes away from Halona Blowhole. Sandy Beach got its name due to the fact that it is the only “sandy” beach located along the rocky coastal areal.
Unlike the other beaches on Oahu, Sandy Beach was not accessible by vehicles until October 1931, after the construction of the coastal road that traverse the shoreline at the foot of Koko Crater.
Sandy Beach is known for its violent waves and dangerous shorebreaks that occur almost all year round. Although dangerous, Sandy Beach remains to be a very popular Oahu destination especially to thrill-seekers and experienced body surfers.
On February 1971, the authorities decided to station lifeguards in the area because many first-time visitors misjudge the water resulting to a variety of accidents. Warning flags and sign posts were positioned to keep the locals and tourists aware of the possible dangers.
While majority of tourists visit Sandy Beach to challenge its pounding waves, other visitors simply want to spend time relaxing and enjoying the beach’s stunning views. Sightseers and photographers also flock here to take photos of surfers and of the picturesque surroundings. The large grassy area on the beach park is also a great place for family picnics and small gatherings.
Comfort stations and showers are installed around the area for public use. Visitors may also use the provided parking spaces between the shore and the Kalanianaole Highway. Sandy beach is known as one of President Barrack Obama’s favorite beach destinations.
