Sandy Beach CENTRAL with mountain views
Sandy Beach is located in East Oahu, around 35 minutes (12 miles) from Waikiki. This popular surf spot is best known for its powerful waves and black lava rocks. This central area offers a nice combination of a beach area with some black lava rocks near the ocean and a beautiful mountainous background.
You'll want to schedule a morning session for brighter vivid colors in the ocean. However, my favorite time to shoot here is in the early evenings (around 5 pm), when the beach is shadowed by Koko Head Crater. The temperature is cooler and the lighting is very soft with a slightly washed out background.
