Waimea Bay North Shore Hawaii

Leave 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. 🙂

Location:

North Shore, Oahu

Warning: Jumping/Diving can cause serious bodily injury or death. For your safety, please stay off rock.

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.

A Day in LA, Manhattan Beach California

DESTINATION: MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIFORNIA

Hello Manhattan Beach! After my trip to Honolulu, Hawaii — I landed in LA, in particular, Manhattan Beach. This is how I spent the day! 🙂

I’m feeling oh-so-refreshed after getting some rest! I’ve been dealing with a horrible, long layover caused by the airline. Also, horrible hotel management. 🙁

Waiting for my ride. Nothing like Hawaii, but it is what it is. It’s LA.

Slightly breezy today. Manhattan Beach. Los Angeles. California.

We went to a Japanese restaurant called “Rice.” It is located on Manhattan Ave. They have lots of vegan and gluten-free options. Healthy ingredients to boot!
