Sandy Beach is on the island of Oahu and is a renowned body surfing beach. The beauty and danger in the Hawaiian surf characterizes Sandy Beach. Experienced shorebreak bodysurfers find that its waves have no equal anywhere. However, when the surf's up, there is treacherous shorebreak and strong rip currents.

It is the traditional finish point of Molokai Channel Swimmers and the Kaiwi Channel Swim that starts on Kepuhi Beach on Molokai Island.
