Lonely Planet review

Opposite Sea Life Park and just barely within view of the lighthouse, Makapuʻu Beach is one of Oʻahu’s top winter bodyboarding and bodysurfing spots, with waves reaching 12ft and higher. It also has the island’s best shorebreak. As with Sandy Beach Park, Makapuʻu is strictly the domain of experts who can handle rough water and dangerous currents. In summer, when the wave action disappears, calmer waters allow swimming. The beach park has restrooms, outdoor showers, drinking water and lifeguards. From Waikiki, catch bus 22 or 23; the ride takes under an hour. From Kailua or Waimanalo, catch bus 57.
