Waters off Makaha, Makua Valley

This broad area is past the urban centers of Oahu. This area in recent years attracted "eco-tourism" business due to the presence of spinner dolphins in these waters. This area is also adjacent to Ohikilolo Valley.

Notes


Makua Military Reservation is the US Army's infantry and artillery live fire training range. It should go without saying that entry to the valley is absolutely prohibited, and an unexploded ordnance hazard. DO NOT ENTER.


Makua Valley is actually two valleys that share a mouth in a heart shape. The ridgeline behind the statue, as seenthrough the binoculars behing the statue, is that ridge in the middle of the valley.
The statue would actually stand on a place called Po'ohuna Point, which is a rocky area at the South/Wai'anae end of Makua Beach. There is a dirt road that leads to a large dirt parking area, which is exactly where the statue would have been. The panorama photo was taken from "the statue's location." The dirt road is located after the Makua Dry Cave and before the Military Gate to the valley.

It is unknown whether this land formation is a matte painting, or real. It is possible, but not confirmed, that the scene was horizontally flipped, depicting landforms similar to this area near Makaha. If not flipped, the background could be elsewhere.

Note the yacht on the horizon above Sawyer's shoulder.

(landforms and statue locations)

The same view, but from the opposite side of the two points visible (one is LahiLahi Pt.) in the screencap. Kaena Point, the westernmost tip of the island of Oahu, is at top left.

A view from the correct side, but the incorrect angle too far to the left, obscuring the smaller point, shown in the photo below:

A photo taken from land, at the approximate location of where the statue would be.

Makua Valley is actually two valleys in a heart shape that share a mouth. The ridgeline behind the statue is the ridge between the two valleys.

The terrain is noticeably drier in the summer as compared to the rainy winter season.
