On the west side of Oahu, Makua Beach lies at the foot of majestic mountains, hiding behind a wall of trees. The breathtaking and secluded beach features crystal clear waters that wash up onto long stretches of soft, warm sands. The beach is set against the stunning backdrop of Makua Valley with cliffs surrounding the beach in a warm embrace. The waters are so clear that you can see 13-14 meters below the surface down to the seashell-speckled ocean floor below. It’s no wonder this beach is considered one of the most spectacular in the world!
Makua Beach is one of the most secluded and far away beaches on Oahu. You cannot get to this beach by tour bus. The undeveloped and white-sand beach is worth the extra effort, though! From the Honolulu airport, rent a car and follow I-H-1 W and HI-93 W north along the west coast of the Island. Makua Beach is located in Ka’ena Point State Park and is the second-to-last beach on the road. Keep going along the narrow road until you see Makua Beach on the left. Whether you are travelling from Florida, India, Australia or Costa Rica you can easily get a flight to Hawaii from where you can continue your adventure to Makua Beach.
