Ride the waves in Makaha

Famous as the birthplace of big wave surfing, Makaha has quite the reputation. In Hawaiian, its name translates to "ferocious" which is a nod to its rugged seascapes and monster waves. As well as luring the world's top surfers, Makaha is a haven for sunseekers and snowbirds. From lazy days at Makaha Beach Park to wild adventures in Kualoa Ranch, Makaha vacation rentals unlock access to Oahu's most iconic experiences.

Things to do

Go wild at Kualoa Ranch

Dreaming of lush, jungle-clad mountains, rolling valleys, and the kind of scenery that made Jurassic Park film scouts go weak at the knees? Don't miss the chance to day trip east to the natural wonderland of Kualoa Ranch. Covering a 4,000 acre footprint, it offers everything from horseback rides and movie set tours to ziplining and ATV adventures. Makaha vacation rentals are a great base for exploring the ranch, with the drive across Oahu taking around 1 hour.


Discover Makaha's big wave surfing legacy

While beginners probably won't want to take on Makaha's mammoth waves, the region is still a great place to try your hand at surfing. With its golden sand and gentle surf, Pokai Bay Beach Park is ideal for lessons. If you want to watch the big guns, head to Makaha Beach Park, where winter swells can reach up to 30 feet. Feel like stretching your legs? Why not throw on your runners and hike to Kaena PointÊState Park? The epic trail will take you to Oahu's western tip via secluded sandy coves, rugged cliffs, and tidal pools.


Winter waves at Makaha Beach Park

Makaha serves up some seriously big swells, especially in winter. Whether you want to watch surfers from the shore or take on the waves yourself, Makaha vacation rentals put you just steps from one of the most iconic surf beaches on the planet. If swimming and snorkeling are on your agenda, it's best to visit in the summer, when the ocean is calm and the sea breeze is mild. Fall is also a fantastic time to enjoy an Oahu vacation, with sultry temperatures, irresistible airfares, and a laid-back atmosphere.
