"Makapu'u Beach" Hawaii Kai Things to Do Tip by GuthrieColin
Hawaii Kai Things to Do: 3 reviews and 3 photos
Makapu’u is Hawaiian for “bulging eyes.” The beach is located near Makapu’u point which is the easternmost point on O’ahu and on very clear days you are supposed to be able to see all the way to Molokai.
The beach itself is very popular for bodysurfing but can experience large waves especially in the winter. The two small islands (Manana and Kaohikaipu) just offshore also help to make the area more appealing.
Another tourist activity in the area is Sea Life Park. I did not visit the park but it looks interesting.
Address: 41-200 Kalanianaole Hwy, Waimanalo, HI 96795
Directions: From Honolulu Take H-1 East and continue on Kalanianaole Hwy (72) until pass Makapu'u Point State Wayside. You will pass through a gap in the rocks and Makapu'u beach will be easily visible from there.
