This North Shore beach is a favorite with folks who follow the surfing circuit and also for those who simply like to laze about in the sand and surf. During the summer, its two miles of white-sand shores are relatively safe, and you'll find swimmers and snorkelers frolicking among milder waves. Come winter, though, the surf runs high, and rip currents can be deadly. At this point, it's best to leave the imposing waves to experts and simply watch experienced folks tackle the ocean from a safe perch on the beach. Watching the sunset here is one of the most exquisite places to do so as it sets over the beautiful mountain range to the west.
