Makua Beach is the last beach on the northwest coast of Oahu in Hawaii on the way to Keana Point. This sandy beach on Keawa'ula Bay is a short distance north of Ohikilolo Beach, by the entrance to the Makua Military Reservation. Makua Beach is used mostly by locals for surfing. There is a life guard station on the beach. Roads into the hills and up Makua Valley are closed to the public.
The paved part of the Farrington Highway ends at Makua Beach. The road north of here is unpaved and unsuitable for vehicles, as parts have washed away. Those wishing to visit Kaena Point and Kilauea Cave must progress on foot. This part of Oahu is very arid, and visitors must carry plenty of water to avoid dehydration when walking.
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
Makua Beach is about 7 miles north of Makaha and 9 miles north of Wai'anae on Farrington Highway.
