Makapuu Lighthouse: The Other side

Makapuu Lighthouse hike is located in Hawaii Kai, right before Sea Life Park. It's a relatively simple hike that's paved. The hike takes you up to a lighthouse (the lighthouse that Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler kissed at in '50 First Dates') and you turn around and head back down the same way you came up... or so most people think.

People don't know that the full hike is actually a loop so I'm posting the pictures of 'the other side' of the hike.

The get to the start of 'the other side' you have to walk up the road a little to the scenic lookout point.

Just gotta jump the wall and start...

This is the view of the beach and Sea Life Park from the bottom of the hike.

Some steep cliffs.

  1. Wow this is absolutly beautiful. What a wonderful way to get exercise and also get lost in the tranquility! I miss hiking in the mountains in Asheville, North Carolina. But here its just flat land and alligators lol! Keep up the good work!

  2. I love Hawaii. That is awesome that you get to live in Paradise. We were there a year ago, and stayed on Oahu. We've also been to the Big Island. I could stay there forever. Now that I'm more healthy, next time I go back, I'll have to get a few good hikes in.
