  • We're intrigued by ancient Hawaiian sites and read about Pele's Chair. Pele was the Goddess of the volcano and Hawaiian legends are rich with references to her. As you drive toward Diamond Head from t...  more »
  • Love swimming at Pele's Chair in the mornings. The water is crystal clear and it's best before the tide comes in. Bring reefwalkers and snorkels for best experience. Leave valuables in car. Place belo...  more »
  • Stone has a height of about 10 m in front of the Makapuu point is Chair of Pele. Myths say when Pele was traveling the island of Hawaii sits in this rock, the rest is famous!! ︎ beside the trail entrance toward the right Beach about 10 minutes walk and you'll see on your right direction diagonally. It is a tiny Beach here is good. See features in the full-throttle power spot will do. Waikiki there about 35 minutes free parking in the car is popular, so early in the morning we recommend the.

  • Very quiet beach. It's a little hard to find but during the right tide you can swim in the bay, jump off the rock and/or hike/rock climb up to the rock face. The short trail to get here is not bad depending on weather. Fun spot to just watch some rays or walk around
  • the view is simply breath taking one of the most beautiful places I've ever been if you ever get the chance to visit i really recommend that you come here you won't be disappointed there's even dolphins it was just a breath taking experience
  • Short, easy hike for some pretty views. Small sandy with a couple small (likely man made) rock pools within the lagoon. Only 2 other people when u went, which meant I had one small pool to relax in for myself. Pele's chair itself was beautiful, but I saw it, took a pic, and was ready to move on. Still, interesting enough, especially since there doesn't seem to be as much lava rock in general on Oahu. Also convenient that the Makapu'u lighthouse trail starts from the same parking lot. Parking is free, though limited. So short rewarding hikes in one spot.
  • Short hike, with a little lagoon place to swim. When I arrived there were a number of locals spear fishing, but not too much to see besides the chair.
  • Nice view of the east side. You can see Sandy's beach from here and the hike is beautiful. Paved path so you can walk easily.
