Waimea Bay North Shore Hawaii
Aug. 21, 2018Leave a comment
Aloha Waimea Bay! Waimea Bay is a beautiful beach on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. A famous surfing beach due to the large shore breaks during the winter season. In the summertime, the waters are more calm. A perfect time for swimming and snorkeling. Waimea Bay is also well-known for the gigantic rock (pictured above with me) called Jump Rock. It is approximately 25 ft high. You can climb up to the top of the rock and jump off if you choose to do so. If you’ve been here, have you jumped off the rock? Share your experience with me. 🙂

Free parking lot. Just watch out for chickens and roosters running around freely. They are so cute!

- Surfing in Waimea Bay is a long-standing tradition.
- Eddie Aikau is a famous lifeguard and surfer of Waimea Bay.

- In Hawaiin, Waimea means “reddish water.”
Views of Waimea Bay at a Glance:
Yes, that’s what the warning sign says. If you simply look at the rock, it looks easy. If you’re there in person, it looks bigger and more dangerous. The waves were pretty strong when I was at Waimea Bay. I was almost pulled into the ocean just by dipping my feet into the ocean water! Luckily, nothing bad happened. I would only recommend experienced divers and good swimmers to participate in this activity.

I was pretty fascinated by it. 🙂

Hawaii: Koi Fish, Poke Bowl, Waikiki Sunset

Aloha! 🙂 It’s time to eat after spending most of the day at Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach! Here’s me at the Ala Moana Center. This shopping center was so close and convenient considering where I stayed. Let’s go eat!
My travel buddy had the Poke Bowl at “Baanga Baanga” — The Spicy Ahi. This trendy food item is a rice bowl topped off with cubes of marinated, raw fish and vegetables. Food for thought, Poke means “to slice” in Hawaiin.
We also had the Coconut Bubble Tea and an Acai Bowl at “Zagu Original Crystal & Pearl Shakes.” He enjoyed his coconut bubble tea while I indulged in my all-time favorite treat in Hawaii — the Acai Bowl. The employee that made my bowl did a beautiful job! What an artist he is! Thank you. 🙂
Don’t worry everyone, I ate before heading to the Ala Moana Center. I didn’t just eat sweets for dinner. I had Mandarin Orange Chicken. Mmm!
Koi Fish Pond at the Ala Moana Center.
*Five FUN FACTS about Koi Fish*
- Koi fish and goldfish have the same ancestor.
- Koi fish releases ammonia into the water. If there’s too many koi fish in a single pond, that can lead to poisoning. 🙁
- Koi fish are very intelligent. They have the ability to recognize the person that’s feeding them!
- In Japan, koi fish symbolizes wealth and success.
- The longest living koi fish was named Koi Hanako. She lived for 226 years!
I adore koi fish. They’re such fascinating creatures!
At Waikiki Beach
Watching the sunset at Waikiki Beach never gets old. I can do it every night. ^.^
Goodnight Waikiki. I’ll see you again another time. I promise. 🙂
Have you ever tried out the food court at the Ala Moana Center? They have a wonderful selection to choose from! Only if I could eat an Acai Bowl every day. 😉
Check out my travel tips on the Ala Moana Center and Waikiki <<< I hope everyone that’s visiting finds something to do!
