The Banzai Pipeline is one of the world's most famous surfing spots. The famous tube like effect of the breaking waves comes from a shallow reef just offshore which forces the waves to rise dramatically and quickly. This forces the crest forward to create "The Pipeline."
Ehukai Beach County Park is a great location to watch the action on the Pipeline and Pupukea. At Sunset Beach County Park itself you should be aware of the very dangerous "Sunset Rip", a notorious offshore current that grabs people every year. Fortunately there is a lifeguard tower here. Summertime is generally safe.
In summer the beach is popular for it's gentle summer waves. The water is crystal clear and the snorkeling is great!
