Lonely Planet review for Makaluapuna Point
Makaluapuna Point, the northwest point of Oneloa Bay, is topped by a curious formation known as the Dragon's Teeth. The lava rock here has been cut by whipping surf into 3ft-high spikes that bear an uncanny resemblance to pointed teeth. It's a fun site to walk to and only takes about 15 minutes return.
En route you'll pass the Honokahua burial site, a 13.6-acre native burial ground; you can skirt along the outside of this area but don't enter any sites marked 'Please Kokua,' which are easily visible islets of overgrown native vegetation bordering manicured golf greens.
To get to the Makaluapuna Point end of the beach, drive north to the end of Lower Honoapi'ilani Rd, past the Ritz, where you'll find beach parking and a monument giving details on the burial site. The trail to the Dragon's Teeth leads from the monument along the north edge of the golf course.
