Naupaka kahakai, which literally means "naupaka by the sea," is commonly known to Islanders as "beach naupaka." The tiny white flower of this plant has petals only on the lower half of the flower. Beach naupaka grows well in sandy soil and is plentiful on the oceanside of the condominium project. Another type of naupaka is mountain naupaka. Its tiny white flower has petals only on the top half of the flower. According to an ancient Hawaiian legend, Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire, one day learned of two young lovers who were smitten with each other. Pele was attracted to the handsome young man and, to entice him, appeared before him in the image of a beautiful and seductive woman. However, the young man rejected Pele's affections and remained bonded to his beautiful lover. In anger, Pele chased the young man into the mountains and, in revenge, hurled molten lava at him. Her sisters witnessed Pele's actions and, to save the young man from death, changed him into mountain naupaka. Enraged, Pele refocused her anger on the young woman and chased her toward the sea. Pele's sisters intervened again and, to save the beautiful young woman from Pele's wrath, they changed the young woman into beach naupaka. Legend has it that if the mountain naupaka and the beach naupaka flowers ever come together, the two young lovers will be reunited.
Brilliant fuchsia-colored Bougainvillea grows in abundance on the grounds. The colorful ornamental plant derives its name from the French explorer Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, who is credited as having been the first Frenchman to circumnavigate the globe.
Pink plumeria are among the flowers that bloom on the tropically landscaped grounds of the Makaha Surfside.
Red Ixora flowers brighten the landscaped grounds of the condominium project.
You can see luscious sunsets like this one from the beach fronting the condo project nearly every evening.
