Here are some of the little-known attractions that are all within 10-20 minutes of the Makaha Valley!



The Makaha Valley Golf Resort and Country Club  (808) 695-711 is located on Makaha Valley Road. Stay at our condos to save money!  The West course section is temporarily closed for remodeling, but the East Course country Club section is open to the public.  In addition to 18 holes of golf, they have a snack shop, proshop, bar/lounge,reasonably priced breakfast, lunch, and pupus served at the restaurant til 3pm. There is no dinner service.

Who can come to Hawaii without attending a luau?            Paradise Cove Luau is just 15 minutes up the highway from Makaha, located in the Ko'Olina Resort complex. Ko'Olina also features a golf course, marina, calm man-made lagoons for small children, the new Disney Aulani Hotel, many restaurants including the 5-star award-winning Roy's, (for that one REALLY expensive night out where you treat yourself!), the more moderately price Chuck's Steak House, and many shops in the JW Marriott hotel building. You can use the amenities without staying at the resort (except the hotel pool). 



Rent a kayak, surfboard, standing paddleboard, boogieboard, or snorkeling equipment by the day or week at Paradise Isle located at the corner of Makaha Valley Road and Farrington Hwy. The gift shop carries a great variety of Hawaiian souvenirs and Alohawear clothing. They also sell fishing gear and bait! 808-695-8866

The Henry K. Pililaau Army Recreation Center (PARC) is a well-hidden gem! Located on Army St (a tiny side street between the Aloha Gas Station and Ray's Lock and Key, there's a tiny sign for it on the ocean side of the street). You must park outside the gate if you do not have a military ID and walk in. The sheltered bay has very small waves, perfect for small children, to the left, and for stand-up paddle surfing and kayak sufing to the right. The OCEANFRONT Sunset Bar/Grill is open for food and drink 7 days a week from 11am-11pm. Entertainment starts at 7pm; on Friday , Sat, and Sun nights a live band playing barroom favorites with a Hawaiian twist!



Kaneaki Heiau is Oahu's best restored heiau (temple),. Built in the 17th century, it  is in the center of the Makaha Valley and was originally dedicated to Lono, the god of agriculture. It was rededicated by King Kamehameha I as a war temple.

Turn right out of the condo complex and left into Mauna Olu Estates and drive past the gatehouse. Located on private property (ala hele St), but is open to visitors Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. No admission is charged. Tel. (808) 695-8174
