View of Makapuu Beach Park, Oahu, Hawaii
Oahu Pictures - Makapuu Beach - Three miles north of Sandy Beach on Kulanianaole Hwy, around Makapu置 Point, the most eastern tip of Oahu, is Makapu置 Beach. Makapu置 Point State Wayside Park is a 38 acre roadside park. It has an un-crowded white sand beach nestled against the cliffs, below the Makapu'u Lighthouse, at the south eastern tip of the Ko'olau Mountain Range. Makapuu Beach is a popular body surfing spot, the Waikiki Surf Club held its first body surfing contest here. This surf break is so dominated by body boarding such that surfboard riding here is prohibited. You値l soak in the bright blue and green scenery as you pass along the bluffs at the point where you値l spy two islands resting offshore delivering majestic island views. During your visit you may wish to explore the Makapu'u Lighthouse Trail with two observation decks and a working lighthouse. The observation decks offer sweeping views of the ocean below and the two islands 迭abbit Island and 典urtle Island. On the way back down the Makapuu Trail, at the information plaque, be on the lookout for a faint trail that leads to a lava bench below. When the surf is big at Makapuu Beach, usually from an eastern direction, and the tide is high, you値l see a few blowholes. One is called 泥ragons Nostrils because of the way the spray splits when being forced upward.
