Kaena Point Trail Reviews & Ratings
Spent some time here just admiring the view and really soaking in the atmosphere. I would recommend water shoes as there is a lot of rocky terrain to navigate. Nice place to search for shells and stones though. You could also go swimming, but I would recommend finding a place away from the rocks. Would be an ideal spot for snorkeling.
I honestly love this place if your feeling anxious at midnight and just need to get away go for the drive and go here and when you get to the end of the line get out of your car and breath that beautiful mountain air. Or go in the early morning and watch the sun rise up the mountain side it's absolutely beautiful.
Did this from the North Shore side. Beautiful! Definitely a half day adventure to full day adventure if you’re planning to do the whole thing. We were here two hours and didn’t get to see a fraction of it.
Love this isolated corner of the island with beautiful vistas, tide pools, and untamed environment. On 10 Aug 19 the surf was the biggest I've seen here. Hot, dry, uncrowded, even on a Saturday we had the place to ourselves for an hour (albeit mid-day). We walked from Waianae because it has the best views.
Great 5 mile r/t hike! Beautiful scenery along the coast. My daughter (45 y.o.) & I (70) -we are tourists- saw some local young adults jumping from 12-15' rocks into ocean. We joined in. The local kids were so helpful and supportive. Was refreshing to my body, but also to my spirit to see such good, upstanding young people having good clean fun and being so respectful of other people.
