Makaha Beach Park
With swells that get as large as 30 feet during the winter months, this beach is a well-known surf spot. Beginning surfers and boogie boarders are discouraged from testing the surf when the waves are high and simply swimming is unheard of. Swimmers and boogie boarders should visit during the summer and always be careful of riptides, undertow and unexpected high surf. The area has quite an interesting history. In days gone by, a gang of marauding outlaws hid out in the Makaha valley, wreaking havoc on the unlucky locals and visitors. Of course the outlaws have long since disappeared, but the name, which means "fierce", stuck.
Too many homeless people in this area. Do not go anywhere at night time. We stayed at Makaha shores which looked nice on the VRBO website but we found needles in the hallway. I've travelled to lots of places before and this area scared me more than Mexico.
Great beach for parking, watching the sunset, and for snorkeling/ swimming (I just got back from visiting - FEB 27/ 28 2007.)
I saw about 10 - 15 turtles out around the reef where the Orange Buoy is.
Have virtually the whole beach to ourselves. Don't leave any valuables in the car - just be smart and watch your stuff.
(Car is easy to see from Beach and water...)
Enjoy! I want to be there now! Anyone want a travel buddy?!?! : )
