Banzai Pipeline / Ehukai Beach Park (‘Ehukai)

One of the world's best surfing locations

The Beach

This surfer’s paradise is world renowned for its colossal waves and the professionals who ride them. During Hawaii’s winter months is the prime time to come and watch some of the world’s best surfers riding these 30-foot giants and exploding through their barrels. Swimmers be weary, as the swells here are some of the most challenging you’ll ever see.

Although Banzai Pipeline’s waters are a force to be reckoned with, the beach can still be enjoyed by all visitors. If you’re looking to come to a place where you can kick back and grill with family and friends while having one of a kind entertainment right before your eyes, than Ehukai Beach is the place to be.

Excited to explore Ehukai’s surrounding region? We recommend taking a trip to Waimea Valley where you can hike to Waimea Falls and set your sights on a large botanical garden. There’s also the ʻEhukai Pillbox Hike that leads you to a birds eye view of the North Shore.

Looking for a bite, but forgot your fishing pole? Ehukai has a few food trucks nearby like Pupukea Grill for those looking to grab a poke bowl of your choice, and Aji Limo Truck who offer delicious Hawaiian style cuisine. For more choices check out our list of Food Options below.
