The Magnificent Makua Beach Is One Of Hawaii’s Most Undeveloped And Secluded Stretches of Sand

Whether you live on Oahu or are vacationing in Waikiki, it is a definite fact that the island’s leeward coast is severely underrated. The beautiful windward coast is known for incredible hiking and lush jungle, Honolulu is the center for business and culture, and the north shore is a haven for surfers, but the west coast is often overlooked for other, more accessible parts of the island. It’s a true shame because this slice of coastline is home to some simply stunning spots — including the undeveloped, end-of-the-road Makua Beach. 

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

So, what are you waiting for? Make a splash at this undeveloped gem on your next Oahu beach day, then tell us, what is your favorite destination on Oahu’s leeward coast? Perhaps it’s one of these underrated spots?
