    I'm sight toward the East Honolulu, through the halona blowhole, sandy beaches past Hanauma Bay to Makapuu beach is Oahu Island number one driveveew personally. Makapuu beach is many young people have fun surfing the wave is high up on board and off the coast, little kids of Waimanalo Beach, is the biggest attraction of this beach, Makapuu red right hand lighthouse, front contrast green ocean in the direction of kaneohe to rabbit Island, left, and blue sky and blue sea, on the beach, and what has not worked great. We should go on clear days. This scenic Makapuu Beach little Waimanalo direction went, just behind the scenes around the sea life Park is the best point. And here (away from the beach) heiau and healing pool and is known as the power spot. It is immersed in a tide pool, soothing. In do not forget to pay homage to the Hawaiian God of course. Tide pools around rocks, from Barefoot requires attention.

    Gorgeous beach, turquoise waters and white sands. Surf gets a bit high in the winter.
