  • Makapu'u is an excellent beach park to enjoy the beautiful scenery. (Not for a fun swim.) Makapu'u is a great place to watch experienced body boarders and body surfers challenge the waves. Don't forge...  more »
  • Similar to other beaches and rustic Beach distant islands have to see more ~ also comes with a lot of rough surf the river doubles as a place to go along the coastal road I hear in ~ look.

  • The advantage of the beach of Mkapu'u is that it is uncrowded tourists who prefer Lanikai or Waimanalo. The parking is great and free, the beach is lined with greenery, Palm trees and coconut trees. The view on Rabbit island is very nice (depending on the angle of view, this island looks like a rabbit lying). Practical side, the beach is served by ample free parking, picnic tables, toilets and showers. Attention to the reverberation of the white sand, it is easy to catch a sunburn if you are sensitive.

  • Good, clean beach. Away from the crowded beaches of Waikiki.
  • Not the best beach on oahu, but if you have sparse time on oahu and want to espace the overfilled beaches of hnl - it is a good choise!
  • A great beach to play in the waves. Be aware of the sometimes strong current and Shore break. The waves make this beach one of my favorites.
  • Absolutely beautiful beach pushed up against the mountains. You can kayak out to the sanctuary island and back. It's not usually crowded either :)
  • Nice and clean beach, nice for snorkeling and also for swimming (if the waves are low).
