At the very end of Mokuleia where the road dead-ends is Kaena Point State Park with its secluded sandy coves and huge wide-open spaces. The hiking trail follows a deeply rutted unpaved Jeep road with dozens of small seaward paths branching off to the ocean’s edge. If you opt to hike the full round-trip trek from Kaena Point to Yokohama Bay on the Leeward Coast, you’ll need roughly three hours, ample stamina, plenty of water, sunscreen, snacks, body cover and your camera.

My wife and I really enjoy this trek. We went here before we married years ago and kept pictures of our hike on our desktops. We love going here to see and feel the waves pounding the coast. This is one of the few places...More

This is a gorgeous hike to do at sunset with mountains on one side and the waves pounding against the rocks on the other. We approached Ka'ena Point from the east. The trail is along a rutted dirt road. It is an easy walk and...More

Entered the park from Mokuleia side (north), and it was around 7am, absolutely no one around except for few fishing off the shore. There are multiple routes that run along the shore, some are fairly rocky and others are

Definitely bring a hat, water, and lots of sunscreen. We brought our two keikis (11 & 7) with us and it was an easy hike (about 4m RT). Because this was our first time doing this hike, I was kind of leery from reading the...More

We started our hike at about 8:30. The guidebooks all said this hike was flat. Compared to most Hawai'i hikes it's flat, but there were a few small hills, and the terrain is uneven throughout. Basically, it's not a smooth asphalt path or anything. The...More

Enjoyed the seals and the waves, but the views didn't live up to the hype. I think it's one of the better hikes on this side, but neighbor islands have a lot more appealing options. You can get to good areas in about 30 minutes....More

You can hike either approaching from the north or from the east. We chose from the east because there are nice views of the ocean cliffs all along the hike. At the end is the westernmost point of Oahu where there is a wildlife sanctuary...More

It is definitely best for hiking, not a good trail for bike riding... to rough. I feel it would be dangerous at night, as the cliffs are so high and open to the water below... you could easily slip off the cliff and into... More
