Water is more rough than Waikiki but nothing crazy, be careful of rocks under the water as some parts are shallow and unpredictable deeper parts, nothing crazy though. Sunset is amazing here. Especially with the added effect of the waves crashing against the wall. Parking to get here though can be tricky, I got lucky last time I visited!
