Sunrise at Makapu'u Lighthouse


Makapu’u Point Lighthouse Lookout Trail is a 2.4 mile (4.0 kilometer) heavily trafficked hike on the south-east side of Oahu. It features great views of the south side of the island, beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number photo stops and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

If you are looking to get the best view, it is suggested you get to the trail-head 1 hour before sunrise and park outside the gate. PLEASE NOTE take all your belongings with you on the trail because of the possibility of car break ins.
