The area of Makena is rich in Hawaiian culture and history, revealing a legendary past of the King's Trail, ancient fishing villages, fishponds, hei'au (temple), ko'a (small rock alter) and ku'ula (medium sized rock alter), used by fishermen to attract or worship fish or fishgods. One of these ancient Hawaiian sites is located at the Makena Surf, overlooking the sea, abundant with fish.
The Makena coastline boasts the most spectacular untamed and natural beaches, including Oneloa or "Big Beach", noted for its 3,000 foot long, 100 foot wide glistening sandy beach, with spectacular surf. Near the famed Big Beach and Little Beach, the Makena Surf spreads along the half mile stretch of Paipu Beach.
