Oahu Pictures - Yokohama Beach
Oahu Pictures - Yokohama Beach - Six and a half miles north of Makaha, near the most north western tip of Oahu, where the Waianae Range meets the ocean is Yokohama Beach. Officially named Keawaula Beach, “Yokohama’s” is the most delectably remote long stretch of sun bleached sand you may ever get a chance to sink your feet into. It affords mountain views of the Waianae range along the blue shimmer of the Pacific Ocean.
The sheer seclusion of Yokohama Beach makes it a great place to watch for whales migrating throughout the islands. It is often un-crowded. As with most Hawaiian beaches the water can be quite calm in the summer months, good for swimming. And in the winter Yokohama Beach gets thrashed by northwest swells, becoming a promising surf spot.
Just north of the Yokohama Beach, at the very end of Farrington Highway is Ka'ena Point State Park, this marks the beginning of the Ka'ena Point Trail. If you are into a little adventurous hiking this will lead you around Ka’ena Point and on to the North Shore. One thing you should remember at places off the beaten path like this is that, unfortunately, crime happens everywhere. And Hawaii is no different. You should always leave your valuables at home, or at the hotel. And the best thing you can do when you leave your car is to leave your windows down so that no one is tempted to “break” in.
