‘Anini Beach might be the most underrated spot in Hawai’i. One of the best (and safest) North Shore beaches makes this popular with locals and tourists. The lengthy reef that spans the entire beach is a great spot for swimming, windsurfing, stand up paddle-boarding and snorkeling.
With picnic areas, restrooms, and showers, you can easily spend the entire day lounging beneath an ironwood tree and wading in the knee-deep clear water that seems top stretch out into eternity.
With a county permit, you can camp under ironwoods.
