Makapuu Lighthouse Trail - Review
A pair of sturdy shoes and comfortable clothes and you are ready to explore the views that surround the Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. The trail takes you to a height of around 700 feet to reach the 100-year old lighthouse that sits overlooking a cliff. If you are lucky, you can even sight a few Humpback whales in the Molokai Channel.
Start your day early by having a hearty breakfast at Kokomarina Center and don’t forget to carry your camera to capture the beauty all around.

Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, Honolulu Reviews
Nice easy hike up a paved trail. Conditions were hot. Quite windy in some spots. Great views from various lookout points along the way. We commuted by transit and the driver was extremely helpful by letting us off at the entrance of the parking lot which saved us at least a 30 min walk uphill along the highway. To return to Waikiki we hiked down the hwy to the Hawaii Kai Golf Course. A bus stop by the entrance of the hike be greatly appreciated.
Amazing trail, especially if you hike it down at the whale watching point to the tide pools. It's a little high up, but take it easy and you'll eventually work your way down (follow the white spray painted arrows). It's well worth it. Also, once you're in the pools, just stay a good distance away from the edge by the ocean...never know when a rogue wave might come and crash over.
Loved this hike! It's very easy but it is long and there isn't any shade. There are many places to stop and enjoy the view. For those who are a little more adventurous you can do off the beaten path in some areas. At the very top there is an amazing lookout. To the left of the lookout are pillboxes. Definitely worth a visit too.
It's a good hike. It is paved all throughout you can take a baby stroller if you need too. Please dont bring your pets. We saw a couple that were struggling. Poor poor poor animals. You could tell it was way to hot for them. I felt so bad for those animals. The views are great you can see the tide pools at times. You can't really get to the light house though it is fenced off.
Absolutely beautiful walk up the coastline to look over the island. The path is paved and well maintained. The breaks along the trail are well spaced and amazing spots for views. The final stop looks out on the light house and is such a perfect place for a picture. If you're visiting Oahu, or haven't visited this spot yet, you have to.
