Makapuu

Located just down the road from Makapu’u is Sandy Beach Park.  Sandys is a popular beach for body boarders, and it is known as one of the most dangerous beaches in the world, due to its dangerous shore break.  Swimmers should take great caution when entering the water at Sandys.


In this photo you can see the Halona Blowhole in the background. Halona is usually most active during large swells. 

 

The Makapu’u Lookout offers a view overlooking the beach itself and on clear days, highlights the expansive sandy bottom and patchy reef .  There is a hike to the Makapu’u light house on a gradual paved path, most popular for catching the sunrise.

 

Here is a street side view of Makapu’u beach.  Waves here can be strong so take caution when entering the water.
