The Makapu‘u Point trail, within Kaiwi State Scenic Shoreline, offers outstanding views of O‘ahu’s southeastern coastline, including Koko Head and Koko Crater. From the trail’s destination at Makapu‘u Head, one is rewarded with magnificent views of the windward coast and offshore islets, as well as the historic red-roofed Makapu‘u Lighthouse built in 1909. This trail is an excellent place to view migrating humpback whales in season (November – May). Uphill climb to 500-foot elevation under hot, dry, and windy conditions. No drinking water or restrooms available.
