The Leeward Coast's most popular beach is a peaceful stretch of white sand that is quieter than the crowded Waikiki strip. The beach is also one of Oahu's legendary surf breaks—although novices will want to take a lesson first before venturing out on their own. The Makaha Beach Park features amenities including restrooms and a shower as well, making it a convenient and comfortable place to spend a day relaxing and enjoying the warm sand and clear, bright-blue water. Located on the west side of Oahu, it's also a great spot to watch the sunset.
