Explore North Shore Beaches: Shark’s Cove

Posted by Sarah Klacik on

Shark's Cove North Shore Oahu

One of the North Shore’s gems. Don’t let the name keep you away! Well known for it’s great snorkeling, Shark’s Cove is a beautiful protected cove that sharks don't enter. The water is usually very clear (the exception being the end of summer), making it easy to spot the many fish that find refuge in the cove.

During the summer months, snorkeling and cave diving on the outside of the cove is a popular attraction. But when the winter waves are rolling through, don’t venture outside. It can be pretty dangerous!

Stick around for the sunset, if you have time! It made our list of top places to view the sunset!

The Details:


 Location:

Located at Pupukea Beach Park, right on Kamehameha Hwy.

Restrooms:

Yes. Restrooms are located near the Pupukea Beach Park parking lot.

Lifeguard:

No. There is no lifeguard at this beach, so keep a watchful eye on your children.

Parking:

There is limited parking at Pupukea Beach Park, but just a short distance away (to the left of the Pupukea Fire Station) is an additional parking lot.

Insider Tips:

- The exposed coral at the cove is very sharp, so water shoes or flippers are recommended. Watch little children, as a fall on them could cause some serious injury. 

- Theft is common here, so don’t leave valuables in your car. I recommend you use a good waterproof container and take your keys/camera/cash with you.

- Even though this is a protected cove, avoid when there are large waves forecasted at Waimea and Pipeline.  

- There are some GREAT food trucks right across the road, the Elephant Truck (Thai) being my favorite.
