Went to this beach on our July 2018 trip. The beach can get busy later in the day. Not much around so bring supplies. Life guards on the premise. Would visit beach again.

This is a great beach with lots of local presence. There are lifeguards and facilities not too far away. The parking is off street and the waves are moderate to small.

Like a lot of places in Hawaii, the view is what it’s all about. Not crowded at all. Quite serene. Killer sunsets. Worth the drive up to see if you have time to kill. Not a must see location though.

This beach is beautiful, especially when you're swimming in crystal blue waters and watch the mountains on the background. There are all the necessary facilities and It's never too crowded.

Best surfing and sun bathing beach on the Waianae Coast. Many surf contests and professional surfers hail from Makaha.

We were not mistreated or bothered while we were there, and we kept to ourselves at the far end of the beach, where it was not very crowded. I don't tend to think about or notice "colors or races" of people, but looking... More
