At this dog-friendly beach, you and your adventure pup have lots of room to roam. If you want to swim, go to the middle of the beach where there isn't a reef. Swimmers and bodyboarders love the summer months when the tide is calm. During the winter, the waves are rougher, making it unsafe to swim, but pawfect for all the surfers.
From the beach, you will have some of the best views of the clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, bright green grassy areas, and typical Hawaiian mountainous regions. Due to its location on the driest side of the island, Makaha Beach Park can get pawfully dry and hot in the summer. There's also little shade, so be sure to bring an umbrella to give your pup a cooler place to relax. Picnic tables are on site for a picturesque lunch with family and friends, as well as showers for washing off and restrooms.
Your dog is allowed on this woofderful beach, but they must wear their leash at all times. Dogs are also only allowed in areas below the high-tide line to the ocean, which is generally marked by a line of seaweed or debris. Always carry fresh water for your dog to drink, and be sure to have clean-up bags on hand to keep the beach looking puptastic.
With clean and soft sandy beaches and clear blue waters, the Makaha Beach Park is sure to keep your dog's tail wagging!
