Located on Oahu's North Shore next to Haleiwa Beach Park, Pua'ena Point is mainly known among the local surf crowd for being a good surf spot. It can be a good spot for beginners when the waves aren't too high. Surfing lessons take place here. But when the surf is way up, it's for experts only. Most surfers enter the ocean from a small sandy beach before reaching Pua'ena Point.
The beach is a nice place for a picnic, and on the weekends local families come here with their children. The nearshore ocean bottom is a mixture of rocks and small sand patches. If you walk further along the shoreline , you'll reach Pua'ena Point.
