Six and a half miles north of Makaha, near the most north western tip of Oahu, where the Waianae Range meets the ocean, is Yokohama Beach. Officially named Keawaula Beach, “Yokohama’s” is the most delectably remote long stretch of sun-bleached sand you may ever get a chance to sink your feet into. It affords mountain views of the Waianae range along the blue shimmer of the Pacific Ocean.

The sheer seclusion of Yokohama Beach makes it a great place to watch for whales migrating throughout the islands. It is often uncrowded. As with most Hawaiian beaches, the water can be quite calm in the summer months, good for swimming. And in the winter, Yokohama Beach gets thrashed by northwest swells, becoming a promising surf spot.

Just north of the Yokohama Beach, at the very end of Farrington Highway, is Ka'ena Point State Park. This marks the beginning of the Ka'ena Point Trail. If you are up for a little adventurous hiking, this will lead you around Ka’ena Point, on to the North Shore. One thing to remember: crime happens everywhere and Hawaii is no different. In places off the beaten path like this, you should always leave your valuables at home, or at the hotel. And the best thing you can do when you leave your car is to leave your windows down so that no one is tempted to “break” in.

"A very secluded beach!"

We drove all the way to the end of the highway and on our left was the most amazing beach. We will definitely remember to leave more time to explore this area next time.
