West Coast of Oahu
The West Coast of Oahu is so dry that it looks like places in Southern California. The beaches are spectacular, not much sand, but beautiful waves and rock formations. The highway hugs the coast and ends just where you can see the mountain in the distance. The sandy beaches are confined to the coves where rivers or streams empty into the ocean. I would guess that these size waves are typical. Not much room for swimming or surfing however. The day was slightly overcast, but that was the same as it was almost every day during this season. Not much of Hawaii on the island of Oahu looks like the travel photos and brochures.
