Makua Cave is an ancient Cave, regarded as holy by the Hawaiian indigenous religion. The cave is situated on a mountain side overlooking the beach of Kaena Point (On the far west side of the island of Oahu, Hawaii, USA).
There is an Upper Makua Cave and a Lower Makua Cave – the Lower cave one is much deeper but lacks the breathtaking view of the upper one. There is no marked trail (Updated to 2015) just head straight up to the top of the ravine. the surface is mostly loose rock and dirt. be careful of falling rocks that might fall from people above you. The hike is about 30 minutes long – depending on the season (when it is wet it might be slippery and when hot.. well you better do everything slower – Don’t forget Sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and sufficient amount of water.)
- Park your cart at the dirt Kaneana parking lot (there is a rock with the word Kaneana embedded on it). There’s usually enough room there.
