North Aliomanu Beach is a little out of the way pocket of sand and black rocks on the east side. I don't shoot here often, but if i need to see an unobstructed sun rise over the ocean this is one of the places that i'll go-- year round.

While there isn't much sand here, it's likely that you'll be the only person on the beach at any given time. You may run into a hippie or two-- clothed or unclothed-- and quite possibly a throw net or tako fisherman.

There are not too many shells to be found here, and the sand is corse from all the broken coral form the protective outer reef.
