  • My guess is this is what the original beaches looked like a hundred years ago. Very few people go out here yet there are hiking trails and tide pools near the surf breaking on the rocks. This is a rea...  more »
  • Ka’ena Point is off the beaten path, and to get to it you need to follow a path that is itself beaten almost into unwalkability. However if you love nature, Ka’ena could be the most memorable place yo...  more »

  • Really beautiful! There weren't as many albatross there as I guess there usually are so that was slightly disappointing, but beautiful. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring water. There's no shade on this one! There's a spot where the trail kind of looks like it ends, but you just have to climb up and over a bit. There's a cool land bridge at one spot along the trail.
  • Kaena Point offers a glimpse at the edge of the Oahu island. It is a rough terrain out there. The hike is stunning with views of the mountain range to one side and the ocean on the other. The albatross birds are fun to watch. They will take flight and sometimes buzz right over your head. At the point look out, you can usually get a glimpse of the seals basking on the beach. The waves crashing on the rocks offers some powerful display of the ocean. Be careful though!!!!
  • This is a beautiful location to go to especially if you're a tourist you can walk out to the point at Sunset and get spectacular views.
  • THE BEST TRAIL before arriving at the point to watch the sunset. You'll witness several spots where everything around you is just amazing! Perfect for pictures and hangouts. After you watch the sunset at Kaena Point, make sure you leave with a light of some sort as it gets dark fast and the trail is under an hours walk back to the parking lot. Enjoy the scenery!!
  • 5mi RT hike. Not much elevation gain but decent ocean view. Not one of my favorite hikes on the island.
