Sure, get back to me whenever. Beaches are easy. The North Shore is beautiful and worth seeing, but the turbulent waters are better suited for surfing than swimming. I wouldn't suggest swimming on the North Shore, it's dangerous. If you're into sunsets, the best place to watch is Makakilo Beach. For swimming I prefer Magic Island. It's a cove (not actually a separate island despite the name) in Ala Moana Beach Park. There is a large rock wall that acts as a wave break and makes swimming...

I have a story that might fit this thread. About 8 years ago I went on a vacation to Florida. Some friends of mine own a beach house down there and it was the perfect set up. I went along with my girlfriend at the time and my best friend. One day we went to the beach as usual and decided to play in the water. I just lay across a float and paddled - because I can't swim. And the other two swam and played. It was a lot of fun. We did this for some time until finally my friend looked up and...
