Makapu'u Beach

Nice smaller beach equipped with bathroom facilities. The beach has strong waves breaking close to the shore. Its a great spot for body boarders. The sand is really nice and there seems to be plenty of room for everyone. The parking area seemed like there was ample parking.  As with any beaches here, plan on going early to get parking.  One end of the area is all lava with some tidal pools and the other end is a medium sized beach area. The beach lies below the Makapu'u Lighthouse, so you could do that hike and then cool off in the water.
