Opposite Sea Life Park, 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.
