“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is the beach where my wife and I got married. The views of Rabbit Island, Makapuu Point Lighthouse, and the deep blue water were absolutely stunning.

“Skip the tourist beaches - HEAD TO MAKAPU'U!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

This is seriously one of the best beaches on Oahu. It is not crowded, mostly locals use this beach. I have been several times - perfect for body surfing. Waves can get as large as Waimea. If you are looking for a fantastic beach away from tourists - head to Makapu'u!
