Oahu Pictures - Makaha Beach - Picture of Oahu - Twelve and a half miles north of Ko Olina, and just north of Waianae along Farrington Hwy, is Makaha Beach. This park is found literally right off of the road so it would be hard to miss. Makaha Beach is an incredible wide white sandy hunk of pure heaven.
Makaha Beach is a large half-moon shape today with reef formations on the northern and southern points. The beach is large enough that even though it’s popular there's always plenty of room, but shade seekers won’t find any here, only Sun. There are restrooms, picnic areas, showers, and a lifeguard.
Swimming at Makaha Beach is better in the summer months, as northwest winter swells bring in expert surfing conditions to Makaha. It is best left to the experienced surfers, as this is one of those waves that even at times when it does not look like much it still packs a wallop. Makaha Beach Park is the location of the “Buffalos Big Board Contest” in honor of legendary Makaha lifeguard and surfer Richard Buffalo Kealana. This contest occurs annually featuring old early day wooden boards, tandem surfing, and canoe surfing. It is a blast to witness. Waves can reach heights of 25 feet.
