Sandy Beach is located on the southeastern coast of Oahu just past Hanauma Bay and the blowhole….20 minutes from Waikiki. We enjoyed a sunrise here one morning over some Leonard’s Bakery Malasadas, yum!! The morning was so calm and quiet, yet even before the sun was up there were a few surfers catching the waves. We layed our blanket down and just watched the waves crash!
This beach is known as one of the best places for experienced body surfers, but it is also know as the most dangerous beach on Oahu! People call it “the beach of broken necks.” Even when the water looks calm, there are very dangerous underwater currents. This beach as been host to many competitions over the years: surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing, and skim boarding. Maybe next time we go we will be lucky enough to see one!
