Very nice spot, one of my personal favorites. Good to go to when Honolua Bay is crowded. Whatever size Honolua bay is, slaughterhouse will always be a little smaller. I'd recommend going here only if Honolua is 10 foot face or bigger. 8-12 foot Slaughterhouse is very fun, and can give massive barrels. Very heavy when big. It will break far out past the rock sticking out in the middle. It can break to the left or right or the big rock. Its fun to catch the left and go around or over the rock haha.
Usually there are about 10-20 tourists down there. Some of them catch the little shorebreak on the sandbar but will almost never go out to the real outside break so its all yours. Ive been here over 20 times and have never seen a shark yet, only heard of stories.
This beach was nicknamed Saughterhouse because there used to be a cattle slaughterhouse nearby a long time ago, and they used to dump the excess leftovers from the cows into the bay for the sharks to feed on. Yummy!
