Makapuu Lighthouse Hike

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Makapu’u Lighthouse is one of Hawaii’s most familiar landmarks commanding a spectacular view of the Windward side of O’ahu. The lighthouse was built in 1909 and automated in 1974. A 2-mile paved trail leads to the lighthouse and a fantastic view of the entire coastline and the island of Molokai in the distance.

Two smaller islands can be clearly seen from this lookout – Manana Island, the largest, and Kaohikaipu Island. The Molokai Channel runs past Makapu’u Lighthouse and is an excellent spot to watch Humpback whales as they travel the channel between December and April.
