If you want to spend the day with your pup at a secluded beach, check out Makua Beach! This undeveloped beach is typically very quiet, and pups are welcome to join you on the beach on-leash.
Makua Beach is located at the end of a dirt road, and a parking lot is available right next to the beach. The beach itself is about half a mile long, and it’s surrounded by the beautiful Waianae Mountains. You and your pup can go for long walks together on the white sand. As you walk, you can enjoy views of the mountains and the unique Pohaku Kula'ila'I limestone rocks on the eastern end of the beach. As you’re strolling down the beach, you may see some fishermen trying their luck catching fish. You may also see some surfers out in the water as Makua Beach is a pawpular place for surfing and bodyboarding.
Makua Beach is also a great place to spot wildlife. Dolphin pods often swim by the beach, especially in the morning. Plus, in winter, you can sometimes see whales breaching in the distance. Be sure to bring some binoculars to get a good view!
You and your pup can also go swimming if you’d like, but just be careful because the waves can get high and the current is sometimes rough. Try to stay close to shore while you’re out in the water, and look out for rocks. After you and your pup are finished exploring the beach and swimming, you can relax on the sand and have a puptastic time sunbathing together.
Makua Beach is a furiffic quiet beach that you and your pup are both sure to love. Be sure to bring some drinking water and doggy bags with you to the beach, and have a fun day out in the sun!
