From Makaha we continued south past Waianae, the largest residential community on the Leeward Coast and home to the Waianae Small Boat Harbor from which several ocean tours departs.
We drove past and Pokai Bay where the beach is the most protected on the coast and where the water is calm most of the year. The US Army maintains a recreation center here. In 2003, the center was renamed the Pililaau Army Recreation Center (PARC) in honor of Herbert Kaili Pililaau (October 10, 1928 – September 17, 1951), a U.S. Army soldier and recipient of the Medal of Honor, for his actions in the Korean War.
At the southern end of the bay is a coconut palm covered peninsula known as Kaneilio Point which is home to the three terraced Kuilioloa Heiau.
