Makapuu- Head East on Kalanianaole Hwy and go up the big hill near Koko Crater. At the top of the hill on the right is the entrance to Hanauma Bay. You are too late- the parking lot is filled!! The parking lot is closed and  you must go back down the hill, park your car and walk up. It's worth it though. You also must spend more time to see the movie so you don't damage the reefs. Walk down the hill to experience the full beauty of the Bay. Go swimming and see a few fish and ten thousand tourists. Spend a few bucks and take the trolley up the hill in style- it's time to leave!

Keep following the road east and the coastline turns into rough lava rock. There are several places to stop and check it out. Blowhole beach is easily one of the most beautiful beaches on this island. It is a little adventure too! Climb down the hill and go check out the Blowhole and all the coastline- really nice-kids love it.

Okay, enough of this tourist stuff- let's get down to business! Next stop- Sandy Beach. A wild assortment of tourists and locals. Some of the best showers on the island. Big waves, small waves,- don't break your neck on the sand or piss anybody off. Bodyboard, bodysurf, or board surf the outer breaks- all kinds of stuff to do. Look for the white Kenu Jetski rescue sled and rescue bodyboard.

Keep going around the coast, you might see some good unridden waves with nobody there near the stop light. Keep going up the hill to Makapuu. Get to the top and then suddenly you see it- one of the most beautiful sights in the world- Makapuu,  Rabbit Island, and the Waimanalo coast. Stop at the lookout and take it all in.

Go park your car in a good place and make sure you don't leave nothing valuable either showing or in the car. Grab your bodyboard and walk down the hill. The break on the left side is bigger and the boyz from Waimanalo have it wired.  If you are up to it, surf there, if not go to your right where good waves are still to be found. Don't bring a surfboard here, the Lifeguards won't let you use it.
