Sunsets are absolutely breathtaking. Dog friendly / family friendly. You gotta drive to get here.
This is where the locals go, and where visitors come to get away from the touristy-ness of Waikiki and Honolulu. No bathroom, so bring your own TP. No food, so BYO as well! Stop at the local grocer on your way there, pick up some Hawaiian brew and stock up on Poke and Spam Masube. Make sure to bring a cooler, bc this beach gets hot! Very strong surf, so not for the faint of swimmers. Definitely keep an eye on your kids if they venture out into the water. Locals beach, and they're all super friendly! Just say hello and offer a beer :)

These areas are great for swimming. The area is protected by some rock structures to break the waves so it is calm for swimming next to the resorts. Great areas for children.

Manulele Distillers is home to KoHana Rum, Hawai'i's first and only agricole rum distillery. We look forward to showing you our rich history through sight and taste. We hand-harvest throughout the year and press the cane to juice right at the distillery. No molasses or refined sugar in anything we do. We are a true farm-to-bottle rum distillery like no other in Hawaii. We can accommodate small to large groups. Reservations are recommended. Tours and tastings run every Tuesday to Sunday between 10am and 3pm. The store is open for purchases until 5pm. Private tours are available upon request. We are a family friendly tasting room. Visit our gift shop for that perfect Maui souvenir or join our Rum Club! Started as a conservation farm in 2008, Manulele quickly became the largest conservator of native Hawaiian sugarcane in the world with over 30 named varieties each genetically tested for authenticity. We grow only heirloom varieties of sugarcane brought to Hawaii by Polynesian voyagers 1,000 years ago. There are no hybrid canes here.
The tour is worth 30-40min of your time. The staff are wonderful and knowledgable. The Rum and how it produced at this property is different than others. Very smart conservationist. The Rum is unique and a little more than your use to paying, but honestly it's worth more, it is small batch. This is a local owned business and is run with heart.

difficult to park and we never saw a turtle. there was a monk seal sleeping however and a volunteer guarding him. there was an incident where a local decided the beach was his and he went through a women's bags while she was in the water..she caught him red handed and yelled at him with expletives. no facilities.

At the very end of Mokuleia where the road dead-ends is Kaena Point State Park with its secluded sandy coves and huge wide-open spaces. The hiking trail follows a deeply rutted unpaved Jeep road with dozens of small seaward paths branching off to the ocean’s edge. If you opt to hike the full round-trip trek from Kaena Point to Yokohama Bay on the Leeward Coast, you’ll need roughly three hours, ample stamina, plenty of water, sunscreen, snacks, body cover and your camera.
This can be a very dangerous area. Locals do not like visitors here. Our car was broken into. There are lots of nice beaches on the beaten path, not as isolated. I would avoid this one.

A popular beach for surfing.
This place is great. If you’re looking to snorkel, there are fish everywhere and it won’t be very hard to find sea turtles swimming around underwater. If you’re into surfing, there are waves on the right side of the beach, just make sure not to go too far to the rocks. If you just want to go swimming, it gets deep really quickly and the current is fairly strong. Finally, there is a shave ice wagon nearby and the guy behind the counter is really nice, but hard to understand. Don’t recommend going to the bathrooms, they look very unsanitary and it doesn’t look like they are cleaned.

Great place to go after getting lunch at Barbecue Kai or L&L. Nice beach. Lots of local families. Bring lots of smiles and aloha. Lot of family cook outs in the park and church activities on weekends. Not very crowded as a rule. If you are from off Island use at least a 30 sunscreen. I'm an east coast water skier kite boarder that never used sunscreen. Italians are like that. After one our on the beach between 10 AM & 2 PM. Peel time for the first time in my life. 7 UV east coast as high as 14 here on the Island, Cool off in the water and lather up again. Been here 10 1/2 half years and still use sun screen. Better than lobster skin, Eh? Tommy

This beach has everything...It is long, wide, uncrowded. Restrooms, picnic tables and a large grassy area. This is a great place to come during the week. There is a large homeless population around, but we did not experience any problems.

So, we've been back three or four times in the past month. So much nicer in the early morning or evening, for sunset, due to cooler temps! Easy up and down trail that is easy to follow. Start around the 12th light pole on Kaukama Road (the trailhead is easy to spot) and continue up, always veering left when you see false trails on the right. Once you reach the switchbacks there's no way to NOT follow the trail all the way up. 30 minutes up (while waiting for my slower hiking partner) and about 22 minutes down.
Views from the pillboxes are amazing. Sunsets are beautiful up there!

I'm in love with this mountains. Because they are on dry side of island, they are not totally covered with vegetation, so they look very different from the ones on Koolau range. You can see the rock formation, and the view changes through out the day depending on how the light reflects on them. So when you are at the beach in Waianae you get beautiful beach and mountains views to relax.
