Makua Beach, Island of Oahu

Of all the beautiful beaches on the Waianae Coast, Makua Beach is the most spectacular. Its long crescent of white sand fronts a deep, wide valley that is undeveloped and uninhabited. One of Makuas greatest attractions is that it is the only coastal valley on Oahu without housing or other development projects. Makua means parent and the valley is identified in Hawaiian creation chants as the home of gods and demigods.

Makua beach scubadiving is one of those dives that must be explored like a one would do when moving into a new neighborhood. The depth can be from 15 - 50ft. and houses a ledge abundant in fish and invertebrates. Dolphins can be in this area, and lots of white goat fish, moorish idol schools, giant parrot fish, large yellow tang schools, and the famous Hawaiian checker cowries
