Legendary surfer and lifeguard Eddie Aikau patrolled the waters at Waimea Bay starting in 1968. Not a single life was lost while he was on duty, sometimes braving waves over 30 feet tall.
Jump off the giant rock. no brainer.
Take a leap of faith off the rock....
DON'T JUMP ;-)
This is simply AWESOME!!! Nothing to fear... land on your feet and you'll be just fine. The bottom is very soft sand, no rocks. You haven't lived til you've done this!!!
Sometimes stuff gets stolen near the rock so make sure you're with a group
If you're thinking abt jumping and a little scared, the problem is you're thinking about it. JUST DO IT!
Bring your swim suits--there's a jumping rock u can stand on and jump into the ocean!
Great swimming in the summer, surfing in the winter. Big beach. Lots of room..and the famous jumping rock - you gotta do it!
One of the most beautiful places on the island. Rainbow here above the mountains..
Dolphins! But be respectful, just let them be.
Visit the Falls!! Such a tranquil place...Darren the guard is the sweetest ever...:)
If you go on the right day, you might see Rusty the dog jump with you!
The swimming is awesome when it's flat... Go out to the rocks past the jump off rock and swim across the bay.. Amazing views
Climbing up the rock is no joke... BUT once you're up there... That Jump is Glorious!!!!
Just Jump :)
Get here early! SMALL PARKING LOT
Rock jumping but only in the spring/summer seasons when the water is calmer...
Great place to jump off a 30 foot rock into the ocean!
Drive up and park at the St Peter & Paul Church for $5 if you can't find parking... which is usually the case.
My Auntie Maile used to jump off this to get the coral near the bottom. Used to be legal back then, =)
My favorite beach on the entire island. Jump off the rock!
Keep your mouth closed!
Be safe and enjoy jumping!
Great place for a photo shoot!
Park at the church on the mauka side of the road north of the beach, worth the $5
Park up the street at the church, bring a 24 pack of beer get drunk then jump off the huge rock into the ocean.... def way fun
Go to Waimea Bay and swim in the sea. *Summer time is the best as the water is smooth and glass-like* Jump off the Waimea rock for a rush of adrenaline that is sure to keep you coming back~
Have fun and enjoy the workout
Waves to big, great for surfers but not for swimming.
it was beautiful here!
If you don't mind walking, park just off the main road on the street instead of fighting for parking in the tiny lot
Beautiful place :))) there is a rock for dive :))) and u can swim with turtles :)))
Climb to the top of the rock for some cliff jumping fun!
Park by William's place LOL
Park at Waimea Valley if you're coming to watch the waves. $5 saves you some parking stress.
Wait to a wave and jump on it. Just did it! Amazing !
Parking in the lot can be difficult. I usually park on the highway. My favorite beach on the island.
Snorkeling to the far right of beach amazing fish to see
I see cats, chickens, and a person that probably lives in the bushes near the cats and chickens. Never expected to find this combination (at a beach park)...
Beautiful beach. Sadly have been hit on by too many bros and losers. Not nearly as peaceful as other beaches.
Beautiful, not much parking though we had to walk really far
The fish tacos at Luibueno's are THE BOMB!!
Really nice beach, nicest I've seen in Hawaii yet.
Free parking in the valley, upriver.
Leider steht man oft im Stau auf dem hin und rückweg. Früh morgens hinfahren.
