Further along Kalanianaole Highway is the Makapuu Lighthouse hiking trail. This easy route with its moderate incline to the 647-ft. summit is a popular spot during whale season between December and April. This is a definite photo opportunity even...more

This was a last minute spontaneous hike because another of our plans in the area got cancelled. The views from the top are wonderful, you can even see some of the other islands. The hike has little to no shade and so expect to be...More
Makapu Lighthouse Trail is an awesome trail and a must visit / hike place in Oahu. The wide open trail is completely paved with smooth asphalt all the way to the top (the lighthouse is just below the top of the trail). When we visited...More
Paid for the shuttle bus ride with go Oahu card. It was well worth it since we did a lot on the card. Recommended to research the activities since it may come with shuttle bus to some activities and paid admission and extra with others....More
We started our hike around 8am and it took about an hour round trip (including stopping to take photos). The path is paved and wide, which makes it easy to walk up. As there is little shade, I would recommend going early in the day...More

Length of time spent here: 1.5 hours....More

I do this hike several times a month. The only negative now is the constant noise from the tour helicopter industry. Hopefully Hawaii will soon be rid of this industry which burns a significant amount of fuel to service a small number of people, who...More
I wouldn’t advise hiking to the tide pools. There isn’t a managed trail. If you want to see some tide pools, there is a pull off nearby between there and the Halona blowhole. You can walk right out to the beach area and see... More
I wouldn’t advise hiking to the tide pools. There isn’t a managed trail. If you want to see some tide pools, there is a pull off nearby between there and the Halona blowhole. You can walk right out to the beach area and see tide pools there. Not much of a walk from parking area, and it’s mainly rock and sand, pretty flat, and you can walk to the rock area.
