Makaha Beach

Beaches
  • Know your limits at frisky Makaha!

Although this is one of the busiest beaches on the leeward side, it’s rarely crowded. It’s great for swimming during the summer months, but in the winter, high surf and a sharp reef mean only experienced surfers should get in the water. This is the dry side of the island, so it’s usually sunny, and sunsets are beautiful.

Highlights

  • Swimmers should enter the water in the middle section of the beach, where there is no reef.
  • Local families gather here on the weekends to barbecue, kick back and relax.
  • Open-water shower across the street is the best on Oahu.
