If there is one beach in all of Hawaii that you've heard of it's... Waikiki. But, if there is a second beach it's probably Pipeline which is located in the Haleiwa area on the northshore of O'ahu.

Pipeline is actually a surf break located offshore and to the left of the beach. The actual name of the beach here is 'Ehukai Beach Park even if everyone will simply call it Pipeline.

During the summer months this place is often very calm (unless the ocean is angry) and you aren't going to see those famous monster waves that you've seen in pictures and movies. During the winter months, and assuming the ocean is doing its thing, is when you can see some big waves and amazing surfing.

It's during these winter days when the parking here will be filled up and then some and you'll have no chance of parking anywhere close to this place. Of course, when you see that many people here it's a sign that you want to be here! Find a place to park and walk back to enjoy whatever show is going on.

During the summer, at least during the week, this place is usually not crowded at all and a great place to relax, play in the sand, or jump in the clear, blue waters.

The beach here is very long and wide so there is plenty of room to spread out and you'll even find lifeguards, showers, bathrooms, and a grassy area with picnic tables. It's an all around great beach park.
