About Makaha

Makaha, Hawaii Travel Tips

Beautiful white sands, crystal-clear waters, and tons of outdoor activities make Hawaii one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Makaha, HI, located within Honolulu County, is a popular tourist spot because of its proximity to beaches and other Hawaiian attractions. Makaha vacation rentals are excellent for family vacations because they offer much more bang for your buck. Unlike hotels, Makaha beach rentals available for rent by owner from Vacation Home Rentals are spacious and private and offer the comforts of home.
Although renting a car is the easiest and most convenient way to get around the island, families staying in nearby Makaha vacation rentals will be happy to learn that Oahu is also bicycle-friendly. You can rent a bike for the day from many local shops. Public transportation is available, and you can check out the fares and passes available online to save time.

Beaches and Parks

Families checking out our available Makaha beach rentals could also visit some of the best beaches in the area. Whether you’re drawn to kid-friendly areas or romantic, remote beaches, Hawaii has something for every family! Here are a few top choices:
  • Mokuleia Beach Park features a long stretch of sandy beach and a shallow reef perfect for swimming and surfing.
  • Keawaula Beach/Yokohama Bay is a remote beach located on the northernmost tip of northwest Oahu. It is a beautiful spot for those who love nature, but the high surf and rocky ocean floors can make the beach dangerous during winter months.
  • Maili Beach Park is a popular location for camping, swimming, and surfing. The calm waters make it a perfect beach for families with kids.

Things to Do

Families will be astounded at how much there is to do in the Makaha region! Swim with dolphins, go deep-sea fishing, or spend some time snorkeling in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
  • Specialty Rental Boat Tours: There are so many kinds of sightseeing tours available on beautiful Oahu. Swimming with the dolphins, kayaking, snorkeling, and much more are a great way to explore the island with a guide.
  • Surfing and Diving: Hawaii offers some of the best locations for surfing and diving in the world. Those new to diving and surfing can check out one of the many local surfing schools and diving tours available.
  • Sportfishing is quite popular on Hawaii! Waianae offers several local fishing charter boats for tourists to experience the Hawaiian ocean up close. Fish for tuna, mahimahi, and wahoo.


Hawaii is home to many annual celebrations, but these two festivals are among the best choices for those touring the area:
  • The Honolulu Festival (March), located about an hour away in Honolulu, is the most popular cultural event in the region. Thousands of visitors gather each year to attend the festival and see traditional art and dance from participants all over the globe.
  • The Ukulele Festival (July), also taking place in Honolulu, is an annual festival featuring some of the most talented ukulele musicians in the world.

When you want to enjoy a laid-back vacation with no pressure, stress, or crowds, consider booking a Makaha beach vacation rental. This tiny town has a population of less than 10,000 souls, but it's right on the beach and offers a convenient location for visiting other parts of Hawaii. The sleepy, quiet way of life in Makaha will appeal to tired travelers who want to rest and refresh during their stay.

Things to Do

If you feel most at home on a surfboard, you'll want to spend most of your time on the beach in Makaha. This town is known for its consistently tall waves, so it's best suited for experienced surfers, but beginners can try their hand at the sport if they wait for calmer waters.
You might also want to spend your time beach combing at Makaha Beach Park. Bring a book and a lawn chair, so you can stretch out under the summer sun and let all of your stress melt away. Fishing, windsurfing, and sailing offer other waterfront activities if you want to stay on the beach. Lifeguards are typically on duty during daylight hours.
You can also shop in the downtown district or visit nearby attractions, such as Honolulu. It's less than one hour's drive from your Makaha beach vacation rental, but if you want to minimize drive time, make a day of it. Visit the iconic Bishop Museum, for instance, which offers an impressive array of historical artifacts.


Like much of Hawaii, Makaha offers comfortable temperatures year-round. It enjoys an average of 267 sunny days every year, which means you probably won't have to change your plans due to rain. Highs in the summer hover in the high 80s and early 90s, while winter temperatures rarely drop below the 60s.


The Makaha Marketplace is the premier shopping destination in this small town. Here, you can rent surfing equipment and other items to make your beach adventures more enjoyable. There is also a Chinese restaurant, a couple of specialty shops, a quaint thrift store, and an art gallery.
If you're interested in donning some beach wear, take a trip to Guava Shop. You'll find everything from wraps and cover-ups to Hawaiian shirts and bathing suits. It's also a great place to stock up on comfortable t-shirts, Hawaiian-themed bags, and sunglasses.


Coquito's Latin Cuisine Restaurant provides comfort food at reasonable prices. Enjoy spicy or mild Columbian fare as well as a cold beer or glass of iced tea. If you're looking for island cuisine, you won't want to miss L&L on Waianae Valley Road. Meat dishes as well as vegetarian options dominate the menu. Or, if your tastes run a little more extreme, enjoy Hawaiian cuisine at Spicy House, which is known for hot stir fry menu options.
A Makaha beach vacation rental provides you with access to Hawaii's finest food, entertainment, and relaxation. You get the best of both worlds: a comfortable, laid-back town that's close to larger cities and towns in Oahu.
