The Incredible Tide Pools In Hawaii You Absolutely Need To Visit

With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
With approximately 750 miles of stunning coastline, the Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible beaches and coastal secrets. While we certainly love our beach days (let’s be honest though – who doesn’t?), sometimes you just need a little more adventure. Enter the dreamy Makapu’u tide pools, located on the southeastern tip of Oahu.
Because the Makapu’u tide pools are fed by ocean waves, we must issue a friendly warning about the risks associated with strong ocean currents, rogue waves, and slippery rocks. It is advised that you check weather reports and ocean conditions before heading out for the day, always watch your step, and never turn your back to the ocean.
If you like the Makapu’u tide pools, we think you’ll absolutely love these 12 Hawaiian swimming holes.
