This drop-dead gorgeous locale overlooks the Pacific Ocean that surrounds the island and provides local schools, parks, and recreational activities to keep everyone in your family busy! Waianae Kai Forest Reserve is a spacious plot of land that houses hiking trails, beautiful tropical flowers, and local wildlife; leashed dogs are allowed to hike the trailheads with their owners. Pililaau Park, Pokai Bay Beach Park, Lualualei Bach Park, and Kaupuni Neighborhood Park allow dogs that are kept on-leash to stroll the grounds and take in the sights and sun with their human servants. If you are vacationing in the area with your pooch in tow, privately-owned properties and local AirBnB providers can accommodate you and Fido with their dog-friendly options.
The Makaha community is backed up to the Makua Kea’au Forest Reserve and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. This community has a beautiful backdrop that is accessible via the Farrington Highway. The expansive Makua Kea’au Forest Reserve is a well-loved area that has gorgeous hiking trails with breathtaking views that overlook the beach; dogs that are cleaned up after and kept on leash can accompany you. If you are planning on visiting Makaha, there are many privately-owned homes through the homeowner themselves, or via AirBnB, that are dog-friendly. If you are feeling low on calories, Coquitos will not only feed you, but they’ll also allow your pup to dine with you on one of their 4 outdoor, oceanfront tables.
This centrally-located community is easily accessible from Highway 2 (H2) and the Kamehameha Highway.
