From the windward side, take the Kalanianaole Highway (Hwy. 72) southeast beyond Kailua, Waimanalo, and Makapu‘u Beach Park, after which the road climbs up toward Makapu‘u Head. The park will be on the left side of the highway.

Trail Name:
Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse Trail

Trail Description:
The 2-mile round-trip trail involves an uphill climb to 500-foot elevation under hot, dry, and windy conditions. The surface is, paved, being a former access road to the lighthouse.

Scenic Shoreline Description:
A 1-mile hike (one-way) along a paved roadway leads to a lookout atop a headland above the historic Makapuu lighthouse (the lighthouse itself is off-limits, but can be viewed from the trail). At various points along the route there are sweeping views of the southeastern O'ahu coastline, and migrating humpback whales may be visible during whale season. No drinking water or restrooms available.

Services:
Trash cans, no drinking water

Special Tips:
The trail and lookout within Ka Iwi State Scenic Shoreline provide great whale watching opportunities in season. As many as 10,000 humpbacks come to Hawaii every year to mate, give birth and nurse their calves. Hawaii's humpback whale season runs from November through May, with January through March being the peak whale-watching
