Chuns Reef Beach

Oahu's Surf Spot

Chun's Reef Beach, a renowned coastal gem on O'ahu's vibrant North Shore, beckons both surf enthusiasts and beach lovers. Named after the local surf aficionado John Chun, the beach boasts a soft bottom and a deep reef, creating an ideal playground for surfers of various skill levels. Its surfer-friendly conditions make it perfect for beginners and intermediates, with a forgiving bottom that minimizes the risk of board damage. A nearby channel facilitates easy access to the lineup, particularly during elevated surf conditions.

Beyond the waves, Chun's Reef offers a serene setting with fewer crowds compared to neighboring beaches. The west-facing orientation provides breathtaking views of the sunset over Ka'ena Point. Whether you're relaxing on a picnic blanket, observing surfers conquer waves, or contemplating a lesson from a seasoned instructor, Chun's Reef caters to diverse beach experiences.

Parking may be limited, especially on weekends dominated by surf schools. The beach park, equipped with a lifeguard station, portable toilets, and family-friendly picnic areas, ensures a comfortable and secure environment. Explore the rocky shorelines for intriguing tide pools and discover unique Hawaiian intertidal sea creatures. Exercise caution during winter months when larger seasonal wave swells prevail, prioritizing safety in the water.
